Microteaching and the Minicourse. A Manual for Planning and Implementation.
Suffolk County Regional Center, Patchogue, NY.
This manual, the culmination of a demonstration project, is designed to aid school districts in adopting the microteaching minicourse as an inservice education program for improving specific behavioral skills of teachers. The introductory section describes the microteaching minicourse sequence of viewing an instructional and a model film, teaching a practice lesson for taping, replaying for self-evaluation, replanning, and repeating the cycle. Part 2 on planning describes a suggested school district approach to the program including a sample planning meeting agenda. Part 3 on operational procedures is an abstract of the Middle County School District (N.Y.) project, 1968-69, in which four intermediate grade teachers took "Minicourse 1, Effective Questioning in Classroom Discussion" published by the Far West Regional Laboratories. Part 4 contains technical instructions regarding training teachers in the use of audio and video equipment; included are a list of equipment for microteaching installation and diagrams of camera-microphone and studio arrangements. Part 5 on project evaluation includes analysis of specific Minicourse 1 objectives in terms of 13 variables studied in early field tests in California and six teacher behaviors analyzed in the four behavioral samples of Middle County teachers. Appended are application forms for school district participation in Minicourse 1, a paper on microteaching, and a 42-item bibliography.
