Microteaching: Selected Papers.
Cooper, James M.; And Others
This is the second of a series of three bulletins dealing with "Supervisory Strategies in Clinical Experiences." The first of the two papers, "Microteaching: History and Present Status," by James M. Cooper and Dwight W. Allen, begins with a definition of microteaching as a teaching situation which is scaled down in terms of time and numbers of students, but which is not synonymous with simulated teaching, as the teacher, students, and lesson are all "real." The history of microteaching from its development in 1963 is outlined, followed by an explanation of the rationale, the uses of microteaching in preservice and inservice training in the Peace Corps, counseling, supervisor training, and the training of college teachers. Research evidence on the effectiveness of microteaching is examined and the teaching skills involved are listed. There is a bibliography of 58 items. The second paper, "Microteaching in Teacher Education Programs," by Robert F. Schuck, considers three programs: 1) the original Stanford Teacher Education Project, which developed nine specific technical skills in secondary education; 2) the Brigham Young University Program, which forms part of the preservice curriculum; and 3) the San Jose State College Study of that institution's program for elementary intern teachers. A brief concluding section suggests that microteaching holds promise as a research strategy for investigators interested in patterns of instruction. (MBM)
