I finally decided to do the one thing I really didn't want to, and that was to apply to districts four to five hours away thinking that I would relocate if something happened. I really wasn't expecting anything back. Anyway, I applied yesterday, and today, I received an email from HR saying that they want me to do a lesson through either a video I send in or by going there. Here's what they wrote: The sample teach is a five-minute opportunity for you to showcase your talents as a teacher. You will have one minute of prep time and five minutes to deliver a lesson in your content area. The other teacher candidates in your room will serve as your class and audience. A white board will be available, but we will not provide markers, tape, pens, paper, audiovisual equipment or other resources. You are welcome to bring manipulatives or visual aids. You may deliver a lesson covering any content in the subject you’re being certified to teach. Note: you will actually present the lesson as though the other teachers are your students. I am wondering if anyone has done this before and if you have any advice.
