    Hey All - Happy Friday!

    I need help. I have been scheduled for a demo lesson, but due to some technical difficulties I have not been able to get the objective. My big fear is that they will be like "this is not worth the trouble, nevermind." But if I don't get anything from them before the weekend, is there anything I can do this weekend to prepare?

    :help:

    Did they give you the topic or other information about the lesson at all?

    Nope, I am not getting their emails. I get everyone else's emails though, and I can't get the person with answers on the phone til Monday, so given the time of day, I assume I am not going to hear back until Monday, so I want to maximize my time if I can. Anything I can do?

    When are you teaching the lesson? Is this for an elementary job or a specific subject? That's so tough, I'm sorry. Demo lessons are stressful enough as it is.

    High school position, mid next week, it my first one ever, so I am nervous. I guess there really isnt much I can do until I get more info, though I wish I could.

    That's so tough. :( Hopefully you can find out more Monday. Maybe this weekend you can gather some ideas for a fun, engaging lesson that could go with any objective, so you can be a little more prepared once you do find out. Good luck!!!

    Do you know the position you are applying for? If it's a high school class it could give a general idea of what you may need to plan for.
