    Depends on the position (elementary/middle/secondary, self contained/co-teaching).

    They will probably ask about Least Restrictive Environment, How you differentiate lessons, and RTI for starters. They will probably throw out a hypothetical situation and see how how you would handle it. They will probably ask about parent communication/support and team collaboration as well.

    You will be asked about IEPs- the entire process- they want to know that you understand all of it from invites to goals to multiple measures of assessment driving goals and marking progress.

    Differentiated instruction will be another question- most likely.

    Classroom management with positive behavior interventions will likely be covered.

    Communication with home/parents/support services may also be asked. This one will be important as a good communication system can eliminate parent complaints/due process issues/etc.
