How do I find information on teacher job interviews?


I feel like I have searched every keyword possible. I have only found one and need at least 5.

Glad you asked! It's an important topic.

Start your search at the Education LibGuide at The LibGuide is a collection of places to look for high quality information. Click on the yellow-orange tab labeled ARTICLES. When the page opens, scroll down to the Professional Development Collection. Click on it.

You will need your 6 digit student ID that you use to log in to CampusWeb to register for classes. If you don't know it, log in to Blackboard. In the upper left of the home page, look for personal information, then click edit personal information. You will also need the first part of your email address, everything before the @.

When the database opens, try searching "employment interviewing" and teachers. The quotation marks are important, so leave them in. Before I clicked "search" I limited the results to full text, 2007-2012. I got about 30 relevant results, including Randall, M. (2011). You got an interview! So now what?. Teaching Music, 19(3), 60.It's about music teachers, but some of the information will be relevant to all teachers. There is also Clement, M. C. (2009). Hiring highly qualified teachers begins with quality interviews. Phi Delta Kappan, 91(2), 22-24.This article might be useful because it reveals what the interviewer is thinking and doing.

Good luck! Let us know if you run into problems.
