The Use of Videotape Recorders in the Training of Reading Teachers.
Moe, Alden J.; Feehan, Sister Mary Dorothy
The use of videotape recorders in the developmental reading practicum of the Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program in Reading at Clarke College, Dubuque, Iowa, is explained. Through microteaching, the participating teachers develop technical teaching skills necessary to all content areas and specific reading skills dealing with word analysis and comprehension. A videotape is made of the teacher as she teaches both small groups and regular classes of students. Afterward, the tape is viewed, discussed, and evaluated by the teacher and a supervisor. Subsequent revision of the lesson and reteaching results in improved teaching methods. The equipment used in the program includes a video recorder, a video camera, a small television monitor, and a microphone. The prices of videotape recorders (some under $1,500) are noted. References are listed. (BS)
