An Assessment of Micro-Teaching as a Means for Improving the Effectiveness of the Pre-Service Trade and Industrial Teacher Education Workshop.
Hoerner, James Leroy
To investigate ways of improving preservice trade and industrial teaching practice sessions, 48 participants in a 1-week teacher education workshop were randomly assigned to eight treatments consisting of combinations of two levels of three major variables: (1) receiving or not receiving video feedback, (2) teaching two 10-minute lessons or four 5-minute lessons, and (3) teaching peers or high school students. Four questions were asked in the study: (1) Will participants who receive feedback achieve a greater gain in teaching skill than those who do not, (2) Will those who teach four short lessons achieve a greater gain in teaching skill than those who teach two longer lessons, (3) Will those who teach students achieve a greater gain in teaching skill than those who teach peers, and (4) Will those who teach students achieve a greater gain in self-confidence than those who teach peers? Instruments included participant questionnaires and performance and confidence rating scales. No significant differences were noted in gains in teaching skill or in confidence. However, 90 percent of the participants indicated a preference for video feedback, 70 percent for teaching students, and 55 percent for the shorter lessons. This Ph.D. Thesis was submitted to The Ohio State University. (JK)
