I didn’t want to hijack the other topic about the Design Award feedback, but interviewing, and it’s importance came up several times. Any good tips for helping teams prep for interviews. I have a few things I do (or aspire to, anyway)…
- Always insist on the correct terms being used. Even while the students are talking to each other, looking for parts, etc, by always referring to parts or mechanisms or features by the proper name it makes it more likely they will then use it. It’s learning new vocabulary
- Explain WHY things are called what they are.
- Do lots of practice interviews; videotape them; review together; get someone else to do some interviews with them
- review the rubric
