<< I have an interview for a high school ceramics teacher, full time,
starting in January. I am well qualified. I come from a family of potters.

But, I still have to interview and will be up against a few other
qualified people I'm sure. I hate being asked to spit out facts and
information on
command. Help! what do you think I absolutely have to be able to articulate?
are the latest art teaching or just teaching catch phrases that are flying
around? Or, should I just stick to what I know and not try to dazzle them
with jargon? Thanks , Becky >>

Talk about the DBAE. Disciplined Based Art Education. Tell them how you plan
to tie your production into Art History. Tell them how you tie in the Art
Elements & Principles into your classes and that is a part of your critiques.
The 4 main parts of a critique are (show them the form you will go by). I
will student teach in January and I have 5 months of lesson plans already
done. I also have a tear file (photos of art work by others, famous & other).
Go in dressed for success with a brief case and even your portfolio or at
least slides or photos of your work. They need to know you are ready and the
best for the job. Your family history of potters is a great asset. Have a
good resume and an autobiography with a photo. (I have a checklist for the
autobio. if you are interested.) Try and get that to them ahead of time,
before your interview. Good Luck.
