Q: What is your classroom management style?

1 Answer

I want to provide a friendly classroom environment where the students feel inspired to create, know that their efforts will be noticed encouraged. The rules of the art room are clearly explained and monitored: the proper and consistent care of supplies and tools, the way to clean up after themselves, how to give a good critique of other's work. How to listen to instructions.

One thing that was asked was if I had a certain medium that I was more experienced and knowledgeable in.

There were no surprise questions. They asked what you would expect but I would recommend being prepared to talk about classroom management style because this is a major area of focus at this school. They will ask you how you would handle disruptive students, what has worked well in the past and what techniques didn't work well. Also prepare to talk about a lesson plan that did not go well and what you learned about it and how you would improve it.
