I just got back from giving a 10 minute demo lesson to 3 teachers and 2 admins. It was a 3rd grade lesson on adjectives, particularly, using sensory details. I had to create a 45 minute lesson plan but teach 10 min. I decided to do something hands on. I gave each person a half lemon to write sensory details on a GO I created. What does it look like, smell like, etc. Well, the principal was making faces and didn't even want to touch the lemon. After they did that I wrote their responses on the board and asked for volunteers to create sentences with the words as a shared writing activity. After I finished the 10 minutes, I was grilled again by everyone. Then, at the end, I had to do a writing sample on inclusion. It was a bit obnoxious. I don't even want to work there now and feel like I wasted my time preparing this lesson and interviewing. Is this a normal interview situation??? Definitely didn't get a good feeling. I guess it's back to square one again.
