A Comparison Study of the Effects of Pre-Service Teachers Presenting One or Two Micro-Teaching Lessons to Different Sized Groups of Peers on Selected Teaching Behaviors and Attitudes in an Elementary Science Methods Course.
Staley, Frederick Allan
Reported is a comparison of paradigms considered as useful and efficient for teacher preparation institutions having large pre-service teacher enrollments, limited instructional and supervisory personnel, and limited amounts of class contact time. Pre-service teachers' attitudes toward elementary school science and the experiences of presenting micro-lessons to peers were considered. Two hundred forty pre-service teachers were randomly assigned to one of six micro-teaching laboratory groups. All subjects had the same kind of learning experiences except for type of micro-teaching paradigm used. Feedback and evaluation were provided via a Micro-Teaching Rating Scale used by the peers as pupils. These evaluations were later used to analyze differences in teaching behaviors between treatment groups. All subjects later taught a micro-lesson, using the same plan, to groups of elementary school children. An Audio-Tape Analysis Instrument was used to analyze teachers' behaviors. There were no significant differences (.05 level) between treatment groups and no significant interaction effects in the teachers' behaviors. A few significant differences were found between teaching behaviors and attitudes between treatments. (Author/EB)
