Planning a Successful Demo LessonAhmad Zaytoun

A demo lesson can be nightmare, especially if you are a shiny, new teacher trying to land your first job. Some people stress over it and compare it to taking a horrible exam. However, I perceive the demo lesson experience as an opportunity rather than an exam. It’s a chance to show off your teaching skills, your knowledge, your passion, and to basically show what kind of a teacher you really are. Another way to look at it is to consider yourself as a ‘product’ and the demo lesson is the ad that would get you sold. Wouldn’t you follow an effective marketing strategy to sell your product?
