5 Bits of Advice About: Taking a cover lesson

  1. Make sure you read through the cover work ahead of time. If there are any questions ask a member of the relevant department.
  2. Visit the classroom you will be teaching in ahead of time so you have your bearings.
  3. Make sure you have spare paper and equipment for this lesson. You don’t want to be struggling with the basics.
  4. Teach it as if it was your lesson. Students appreciate a teacher who makes an effort and cares about their learning.
  5. Keep behaviour management simple with lots of praise, but remain assertive. Students need to be quiet when you are giving instructions.
