Teaching Skills Program.
Kentucky Univ., Lexington. Coll. of Education.
The Teaching Skills Program for students in secondary education is a part of a sequence of varied experiences in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education, University of Kentucky. Through microteaching, every student participates in the following five teaching experiences: (1) instructional objectives and presentation, (2) questioning, (3) interaction, (4) refocusing, and (5) summary teach. The sequence of teaching episodes allows the student to move gradually from a teacher-centered activity to a student-centered activity. In this program students apply concepts derived from various learning theories, utilize materials that are specifically related to their discipline, and develop learning strategies that were encountered in the special methods courses. Following the microteaching sessions, the "teacher" receives feedback from his/her students and instructor with emphasis placed on constructive criticism to reinforce those skills that were demonstrated effectively and suggestions for improving others. In addition, videotaping allows the student to do a self-evaluation. (JMF)
