The Effect of Controlled Variables in Microteaching.
Young, Jon I.; And Others
To gauge the effect of different microteaching variables on the effectiveness of microteaching, three treatment conditions were set up. In the oral group, oral evaluation by the supervisor was not available to the subjects (student teachers). In the video group, video recording or playback was not available. In the peer group, ninth-grade students, rather than fellow student teachers, were used as the "micro-class." Three regular microteaching groups served as controls for each treatment condition. Two evaluation forms, the Verbal Interaction Categories System and the Video Teaching Evaluation Form, were used to evaluate the performance of each student teacher in subsequent microteaching sessions. Results showed that only one variable, use of ninth-grade subjects rather than peers, significantly affected performance in subsequent sessions. In this condition, subjects were fairly uncomfortable with the task of teaching younger students and did not allow for student interaction during the microteaching sessions. Lack of oral or video feedback did not affect subsequent microteaching attempts. (JK)
