Student's Guide to Microteaching.
This manual contains a description of microteaching and the format to be used at the Ottawa Microteaching Clinic. Three background papers, which include data on programs already in existence, are "Microteaching: An Intermediate Step," with a 21-item annotated bibliography, by Patrick Babin; "An Overview of Microteaching" (I/D/E/A, Charles Kettering Foundation); and "A Critical Look at Microteaching" by Earl Seidman. These are followed by a self-instructional programed unit on "Behavioral Objectives; Benjamin Bloom's Cognitive Domain" designed to enable students to define and identify instructional objectives and categories for each, and to analyze curriculum plan in terms of high and low order cognitive activity. The explanation of the Ottawa program contains course description, text, microteaching and training lecture schedules, record forms, and instructions for the various phases: creating the setting, microteaching sequence, two-station cycle, large-group skill presentations, actual microteaching process, videotaping, and diagnostic presentation. A section on teaching skills included in the program covers specific techniques under five categories: Response Repertoire, Questioning Skills, Creating Student Involvement, Increasing Student Participation, Presentation Skills. Evaluation sheets for each of 15 skills contain questions for students, supervisors, and teachers. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document. (JS)
