FOR WHOM: Any world language educator (i.e. Spanish, French, German, ESL/EFL) either applying for a teaching position or preparing for an interview with a teaching demonstration requirement.
DESCRIPTION: As your interview approaches, hiring committees often require a teaching demonstration, either artificial (the committee members play the role of learners) or with actual students. In either situation, the pressure to deliver a stand-out lesson that distinguishes you from your competition is high. This insider guide will help you prepare a theoretically-sound, comprehensive, and successful teaching demonstration. It clearly identifies a variety of features your interviewers will be watching for, from inclusion of "anticipatory sets" to appropriate time management to differentiating instruction. Included is a checklist of practical tips, as well as a customized/able Moskowitz "interaction analysis" chart to help you with pacing, variation of instructional strategies, and types of interaction between you and students.
