A Comparison of Varied Time Periods of Microteaching in the Development of Interpersonal Relationships in Teaching. Final Report.
Turney, Mildred I.
Findings indicated that if the number and length of microteaching lessons were increased, one could expect student teachers to increase competence in establishing and maintaining student verbal expression in the classroom. Sixty junior secondary education majors were randomly assigned to one of two groups. Group A had two quarters of microteaching, while Group B had one quarter of microteaching and one quarter of high school teaching. During the first quarter microteaching sessions lasted 5 minutes; during the second quarter they were increased to 10 and 15 minutes. Videotapes of each student teacher were coded using Flanders Interaction Analysis System. Both the number of lessons and the time per lesson brought significant change in behavior in the areas of teacher lecture, questions about information, content, and student involvement in classroom situations.
