Interaction Analysis and Microteaching in an Urban Teacher Education Program. A Model for Skill Development in Teaching.
Amidon, Edmund J.; Rosenshine, Barak
A new model for in-service and preservice teacher training programs has been developed. The Skill Development in Teaching (SKIT) was suggested by recent research combining two teacher training techniques developed in the past decade, Interaction Analysis and Microteaching. Some educators who have worked with both Interaction Analysis and Microteaching have felt that they are compatible and even complementary. The proposed SKIT model is an attempt at combining significant aspects of the two techniques in a model for maximally effective skill training programs. Skill sessions, which emphasize various teaching behaviors to be practiced, are an integral part of the SKIT program: Orientation Practice helps teachers learn how to prepare their students for subsequent activity; acceptance of student feeling as well as student ideas is another skill that is taught; also, through skill sessions, teachers are taught question skills which involve answering cognitive, covergent, divergent, and evaluative questions.
