Why you do demo lessons

Postbox letter from Brian

Demo lessons are there to try and exclude the weeds (of which there are many) from the flowers.


The dreaded demo lesson

How to make sure your demo lesson goes as smoothly as possible

Now that the busy hiring season is almost upon us, many schools will be asking potential teachers for a demo lesson. Don't panic. Let them know who the professional is.


Another demo lesson fiasco

Postbox letter from Lauren

I had a similar situation where I attended an interview with a reputable agency and was sent to do a demo lesson at one of their schools (not the school they needed a new teacher for). I was told to give a 40-minute demo from a book.


A lack of professionalism

Postbox letter from Tommy

I recently went for a job interview and was shocked by the lack of professionalism shown by a school with a good reputation. I was applying for a math teacher position and I have had experience teaching maths to Mattayom 1 and 2


Return of the demo lesson

Postbox letter from Ian

If I'm interviewing for a teaching job, then no one gets a demo lesson for free


The dog and pony show

Demonstration lessons in the Korean public education system

I like the principle of putting on a demonstration lesson and having teachers watch. In my time teaching, one thing I have been short of is the opportunity to see other teachers teach. And you can always learn from other teachers.
