Previously, we talked about questions that can help us come up with a better screening process for teacher applicants. We do this because we consider our children to be the most valuable age group in our society. Knowing that these younger generations are leading the future, we must be giving them the best education they can possibly have.
Now let’s continue taking a look into more talent acquisition questions that we can ask candidates applying for a teacher position. If what we’ve considered before was on the applicant’s vision and personality, what we’ll be having now are questions on the applicant’s classroom management and teaching strategies.
-How do you manage your time in teaching?
-How much time do you devote lecturing?
-What classroom management structure will you implement in your class when you’re hired?
-What are the steps that you take to establish discipline or authority in the classroom? How do you handle disciplinary cases?
-Do you allow visitors in your class?
-Is your class atmosphere the same when you have visitors and when you don’t have visitors?
-Do you have a noisy class?
-How does your classroom physically look like before and after classes?
-How do you want your students to organize the classroom?
-How do you deal with students with exceptional abilities enrolled in your regular class?
-What are your reactions when most of your students fail your exams?
-Have you ever dealt with students with behavioral or conduct problems? Can you tell us how you have managed these instances?
-Do you immediately refer students with conduct problems to the administrator’s office?
-If a student demeans you, how will you react?
-If a student fails to pass his assignment how do you deal with him?
-How do you deal with rebellious students?
-Are you a distant superior teacher or do you encourage participation from the students?
-Do you tolerate or encourage laughter in the classroom?
-Have you experienced vandalism?
-Do you have an established teaching framework or do you prefer teaching spontaneity instead?
-How do you prepare your lesson plans or what kind of lesson plans do you prepare for your classes?
-Do you prepare teaching objectives? Can you tell us of some and how you have achieved them?
-How would you describe your teaching style?
-What do you think are the effective and efficient teaching techniques?
-Do you integrate and utilize technology when teaching?
-Do you have any plans of personally using technology in your own classroom?
-What do you think of team teaching? Have you ever experienced this one?
-Are you an advocate of individualized learning?
-Do you favor independent studying?
-How do you present a new term in class?
-Can you tap the community for students to learn?
-Do you teach basic skills all the time and go back to these when there’s difficulty learning these or do you just proceed or advance to the next level?
-Describe the greatest success you’ve had in teaching?
-Envision your greatest challenge in dealing with students when we hire you.
-What was the most difficult experience you’ve had in teaching?
-What was the most frustrating thing you’ve had in your career?
-When you assign homework, do you make sure it enhances the students’ creativity?
-At the end of the year, do you seriously think that your students have somehow benefited from your teaching?
Surely, these questions will make your recruitment industry responsibilities easier to handle. Now you don’t just know more about your applicants’ convictions, but you know a little more about their strengths in handling their future lessons and classes as well.
