    I got a book from the library "what your ____ grader needs to know" It covers all the things they will learn. I used it to study the CSET. Maybe you can get ahold of a copy before your interview. Otherwise look up the state standards online for 4th grade. Good luck, I hope you get it!

    Hi! I LOVE teaching 4th grade. Some of the grade-specific topics I remember from my interview were:

    - reading in the content areas
    - discipline
    - how to handle difficult situations that come up in this age group (like girl-fights, etc....)
    - differentiation

    If I think of more, I will post again. GOOD LUCK, I hope you get it!

    Thanks, for all the good luck, but unfortunately the Principal called me to day to tell me that the position would no longer be available, because of all the budget cuts and the possibility of class size increase.
