Student Teacher Reactions to Microteaching.
Chang, Ming Chu
This research investigated student teachers' reactions to microteaching through the Teacher Reaction Questionnaire. The questionnaire contained 26 structured items, one comment and three open-end questions. Responses to the 26 structured questions were statistically analyzed through principal-axes factor analysis and varimax rotation. The resulting six factors were discussed: (a) interactions between students and student teachers; (b) interactions between student teachers and supervisors; (c) student teacher preparation time for the 1st, 3rd, and last microteaching; (d) student teacher anxiety felt for the lst, 3rd, and last microteaching; (e) student teacher general preparation for laboratory practice in relation to anxiety felt with the 1st microteaching; and (f) student teacher specific preparation for laboratory practice. The discussion concluded that (a) as actual microteaching increased, practice time decreased; (b) as practice time increased, anxiety decreased; and (c) as preparation for laboratory practice increased, anxiety remained unchanged. Student teacher interactions with both students and supervisors did benefit from microteaching. The Teacher Reaction Questionnaire was included in the report, along with two tables of statistical data. (BRB)
