The Effect of Microteaching, Directive and Non-Directive Lectures on Achievement and Attitudes in A Basic Educational Psychology Course. The Effect of Mode of Feedback in Microteaching. (2 Documents Combined).
Reed, Cheryl L.; And Others
The subject of both papers is microteaching. The purpose of the first study was to assess the effects of focusing on general technical skills versus interpersonal relationship skills in conjunction with microteaching. A total of three training procedures were used: (1) directive lecture (DL), (2) non-directive lecture (NDL), and (3) microteaching treatment (MT). At the end of the experiment, all students participated in one microteaching session to have their teaching skills assessed. Results showed greater teaching skills but less favorable attitudes toward it than students who did not participate. The second study examined the effects on teacher performance and attitudes of several manipulations of the conditions under which the microteaching supervisor provides feedback. Each student was placed in a group. Each taught a short lesson, was critiqued by his supervisor, and taught the lesson again. Various methods of supervision were used, depending on the group. The treatment resulting in the greatest amount of change was the audiotape treatment. (author/KJ)
