One issue that can floor candidates - and it really shouldn't - is finding out that the group have already studied the topic, or (even worse) just taken part in another sample lesson on the same subject!Prepare a lesson which will serve either as a revision of a familiar topic or as an introduction for the first time. Make sure that any questions you are planning to ask have follow on questions that probe more deeply if the students can glibly rattle off the answers.And then produce, at the very least, a good Powerpoint presention, handout/worksheet or activity. Make absolutely sure you have a good extension activity even if you are pretty sure you won't have time to use it. If you can't be bothered to make an effort for this, what does it say about your contribution to the life of the school/college? You have a short amount of time to showcase your skills and also to model your priorities.

But surely a half-decent teacher training institution should cover this?
