One of my grad students is up for a job teaching high school. It's what she wants to do, and if one of my students is getting hired, that's fine, great, even if high school isn't really what I prepared her for or pushed her for.
She's asking me for advice on her campus interview, and I have no idea what the comprehension level difference is between a Freshman in high school and a frosh in college. I know some of you have dabbled in subbing, and we've had posts on this site from some high school teachers fighting the good fight to prep kids for college.
I get the impression that you can treat teenagers the way you treat first-day-of-class fresh-flakes and you'll have it in the bag. Be entertaining, be very basic, but build to a larger idea by the end of the lesson. Am I wrong? Right? Any tips?
