Advice for DEMO Lesson

Hi everyone-

I have a demo lesson next week for a full time probationary position for a reading specialist (grades 3-5). I've done several leaves and am familiar with the role of a reading specialist. Here is a brief outline of my demo lesson....also is it OK to take parts of Debbie Miller's anchor plans for a demo or is that "cheating?"


My plan for the demo is this:

Readers' workshop where I do a read aloud (Grandfather Twilight) and work with the students interactively where they ask questions before during and after reading...all responses go on chart paper in a labeled column (before, during, after)

Students read a short folktake (the shoemaker and the elves) independently and mark before during and after questions on post its. Then group share


Thoughts?

I think it's great. It isn't cheating at all.

Do you have enough copies of the folktale for all students?

Ideally, your students would practice on books at their individual reading level- and I'd tell the interviewers that. I understand you cannot do that for your DEMO because you do not know the students.

Good luck!

Yeah...I was able to find a copy of the folktale online and print enough copies.

I'm just worried about my time frame..I only have 35 mins...

Since you have a time frame, I would practice and time the read aloud, so you can keep yourself on schedule. Good luck!

Thanks! The read aloud should be fairly quick...well the book is short but will take longer with all the interactions and student responses I hope to get!
