Kisner, Mary J.; Liggett, David R.
This publication focuses on suggestions for interviewing new vocational teachers to select candidates who better match employment needs. It expands interview techniques to include an assessment of a candidate's ability to solve problems in the classroom, incorporate academic skills into their curriculum, and continue learning new teaching strategies. Recommendations are made for conducting a legal interview, selecting the interview panel, preparing for the interview, conducting an effective interview, and assessing each candidate consistently. A one-page format for an interview is provided. This interview guide suggests interview questions, indicates what the questions will tell the interviewer(s) about the candidate, and leaves a space for remarks. It also proposes what information can be learned from the resume and from references. (YLB)
