Hope this makes sense!
For an interview lesson, the important factor is to demonstrate children's/students' learning so whilst you could put this in your planning, I would want to do more than show a(video?) clip and then get children discussing. How can you assess progress from start to finish?
I think what's thrown me is the instruction to plan for an hour, but only teach half..so it kind of makes you think, Ok I'll plan as normal but just teach half!
When I had a lesson like this I choose to provide 2 separate lesson plans. One showed how I was going to teach the first 30 minutes of an hour lesson, the other showed how I would teach it if given a full hour - I highlighted the fact I would have spent an extra 5 minutes going through the first task had I had a full hour. This was commented upon in my feedback so they had took the time to read both lesson plans.
I've got the exact same thing, have to plan for an hour but only teaching for half an hour (wonder if it's the same school?! :p) Have been worrying about it all day but i'm just going to plan my lesson as normal. I'm just not sure if the children will continue when I leave or if the lesson will just stop straight there. Good luck!
