The Effects of Micro-Teaching with Video-Taping on the Teaching Strategies of Pre-Service Secondary Science Teachers.
Yeany, Russell H., Jr.
This study was designed to assess the effects of three treatment levels involving micro-teaching with video-tape playback and strategy analyses on the teaching strategies selected by secondary science teaching methods students. Three groups of ten students each were randomly assigned to three treatment levels. All subjects taught a pre-treatment and a post-treatment peer group lesson; both were video-taped. Each student viewed his own pre-lesson, and before the taping of the post-lesson, the following instructions were given: group 1 - no instruction (control); group 2 - instruction in how to use the Teaching Strategies Observation Differential (TSOD) to assess their pre-lesson; group 3 - same as group 2 plus further instruction in how to assess teaching strategies. Trained raters used the TSOD to analyze the post-lessons for the degree of directness/indirectness exhibited by each subject in their teaching style after treatment. Using ANCOVA, significant differences were found between group 3 and group 1 and between group 2 and group 3, indicating a cumulative effect of the treatment procedures. (MH)
