Interview prep

June 14, 2019

At the end of grade 9 math each student has a 1 on 1 interview where they get to present their learning, and show what they know. We’ve been working all term on reflecting, and becoming more aware of how we learn what we learn. Interviews take place for our class on June 21.

Today we looked at what makes a good interview. We watched a video of several teachers demonstrating some good interviews and some not-so-good ones too.we made a list of all the things we need to demonstrate in a good interview.

And then we practiced our interview skills with our peers.

Many thanks to Ms. Anderson and her class for letting us join in and work together with them today.

Eqao’s done!
