Many of you are not in this position (thankfully!) and probably won't have to be for some time, but for those who are suffering the bane of job interviews, you may encounter this question which once tripped me up: Talk about a lesson (project/etc.) that went well or you're proud of.
I don't know about you, but I'm not used to thinking about positive things about myself all the time. If asked what are ways you would improve or things you could change, etc., I could give you quite a list of those! I think this is true of most people -- we have a hard time acknowledging good things about ourselves. Do we think it's bragging? Regardless, it's not a habit we often practice.
When I had this question, I could think of only two things, and one of those I had already talked about for a previous question. I talked about those two things, but I worried that they were going to think I was a one-trick pony!
A few weeks later, after my brain had calmed down and I was able to reflect clearly, I made up a list of possible responses to that question. I wanted to be prepared for next time. The list included the mock trial, literary analysis breakdown, booktalks, students-teach-the-class projects, writing workshop portfolios, reading cinema unit, and a historical timeline project.
How would you answer that prompt? Talk about a lesson/project/unit that went well or you're proud of.
