    Ok, so I just got a call today for an interview at a high school for an open social science position. I AM IN SHOCK! I am a brand new teacher....just finished my student teaching in June. The department chair said "bring anything you want to show." So...what do you recommend that I bring???

    Thanks :)

    I would bring a portfolio if you have one, if not...maybe create a sample lesson/ or bring a sample lesson you created in college that you are proud of...(if you have something appropriate for that grade level)... I never brought a brochure..but that could make you stand out. I would also bring a copy of your resume and references.

    :yeahthat:

    Also, if you happen to have any student work that goes with any lesson plan from college, that might look good.

    Best of luck!!! :thumb:
