I would present the relationship building aspect of classroom management. You can set all the rules in the world, have all the procedures that you want, etc- be a "master teacher", but until you build relationships with your kids they may only compliantly engage. I would demonstrate or discuss at least with my teachers - "Who are you going to work harder for? Who are you going to listen to and respect?" Someone who loves you and respects you, and knows that you (the student) are sleepy today because you got kicked out of your house, or your parents were arguing all night. Maybe your dog died, or you just flat out don't understand the material. YOU MUST HAVE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT. Classroom management advice- know your kids.

And I just realized I didn't answer your question!! Sorry!!!! I would think they would be looking for overall advice, tips, and tricks to manage a classroom. I would think they would like to see examples! Show a recording of an actual classroom sample if you have time and resources. Overall, I would want you to be realistic and not let me think that I can have a "Mary Poppins" kind of a classroom. ;)
