5-E Model for Teaching Inquiry Science
Interviewing for a teaching position
One can envision teachers as “performers” in the classroom. Their role is to communicate to a variety of student audiences while fielding questions and resolving unexpected (yet, inevitable) challenges that arise during a typical school day. Teacher candidates carry out a similar role in job interviews: they share information, answer questions, and sometimes must handle stressful surprises. Thus, interviewers can assess a candidate’s teaching skills, in part, through his or her performance in the interview itself. By preparing for the “high stakes communications” that occur in the interview setting, you can reduce stress, enhance your performance, and increase the likelihood of landing the position.
