Today I meet with Sam Boswell (Co-ordinator of Gifted & Talented and Classroom Management Strategies) and her Year 8 GATE English for the first time. As I entered the classroom, mid way through Period 2, Ms. Boswell was in the middle of workshopping open and closed questions with the class. I sat back and listened into the lesson, which I have to say was insightful even for me!
Near the end of the period Ms. Boswell brought me in and I introduced myself to the class. We proceeded to go through a series of open and closed questions aimed at me and what I did. Next week I will introduce the class to the cameras and set-up some mock in-class interviews. From there it’s on to the real thing.
