MICRO-TEACHING--A PROMISING MEDIUM FOR TEACHER TRAINING.
DUGAS, DONALD G.
THAT MICRO-TEACHING CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY FOR TEACHER TRAINING AND RETRAINING WAS INDICATED BY A 1966 NDEA INSTITUTE WHERE PARTICIPANTS VIEWED ON VIDEO-TAPE AND DISCUSSED THE WORK OF A TEACHER IN A SMALL DEMONSTRATION CLASS OF HIGH SCHOOL FRENCH. EACH MEMBER HIMSELF TAUGHT TWO 15-MINUTE CLASS SEGMENTS OF THE SAME CLASS, WHICH WAS ALSO VIDEO-TAPED. BY HAVING THE TEACHER VIEW HIS OWN TAPES, HE COULD MORE FULLY APPRECIATE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM OFFERED BY OTHERS, RECOGNIZE HIS OWN STRONG AND WEAK POINTS, AND LEARN TO EVALUATE HIS OWN PERFORMANCE AS A TEACHER. CONCLUSIONS BASED ON THE INSTITUTE'S WORK INDICATED THAT (1) MICRO-TEACHING IS AN EFFECTIVE DEVICE IN RETRAINING EXPERIENCED TEACHERS, (2) IT IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE HOW ADAPTABLE MICRO-TEACHING IS TO ADVANCED-LEVEL COURSES WHERE THE SUBJECT MATTER IS STILL ONLY VAGUELY DEFINED, (3) THE VIDEO-TAPED RECORDINGS ARE AN EXCELLENT MEANS OF STUDYING A PARTICIPANT'S GRAMMAR AND PHONOLOGY, AND AN IDEAL BASIS FOR CREATING REMEDIAL MATERIALS. A PARTIAL EVALUATION CHECKLIST FOR TEACHING VOCABULARY IS INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE MODERN LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 51, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1967, PAGES 161-166. (AUTHOR/SS)
