    I have an upcoming interview for a 4th Grade ELA position in NYC. Can anyone provide any feedback as to what questions you think they might throw at me? Are there any specific terms, strategies or trends I should be familiar with. Thanks in advance!

    I would look up 4th grade ELA standards for your state and research the ELA program that the school you are interviewing for uses.

    New York is big into Lucy Calkins! Do your homework on her! There will be questions about reading and writing workshop, guided reading, shared writing, journals, etc. Check out Lucy Calkins!
