  • Describe the steps you usually take in preparing a math, science, history, or other type of lesson.
    • Explain how you establish the goals and objectives, and communicate them to students and to parents.
    • Describe some of the challenges you face with developing activities and obtaining instructional resources in your school. Discuss how you address the challenges to ensure the lesson is implemented as planned.
