Hi
I've got an interview at Portsmouth for PGCE Secondary Geography. One part of the interview is a 10 minute micro-teaching task (does not need to be subject specific) they suggest to pick a skill, interst or hobby. Has anyone else had any experience of micro-teaching tasks and any ideas on what I could do it on?
Thanks

Do you not get told which subject? Sounds a bit harsh!

Hey, I had to do a 5 min teaching task as part of my interview. I was given an option of either teaching a skill or explaining an activity I'd seen at a primary school. We were split into groups of 5 with 2 assessors writing down what we were doing. Most people taught a skill like dance, maketon etc. It's not so much what you do as how you do it. Just be calm, speak slowly and clearly, tell the group exactly what they'll be doing and give clear instructions. Try to ask questions and involve your learners. Try not to go first; you'll feel a lot more relaxed once you've had fun doing the others' tasks. Make sure you're organised with all the right materials you need and maybe try to practice the task on someone beforehand to check timing (I roped in my folks the night before). The time flies, there's not a huge amount you can do in such a short time so don't stress too much.
