Special Education Microteaching.
Southern Illinois Univ., Edwardsville.
Presented is a manual on special education microteaching, an approach to training teachers of handicapped children in which the student teacher teaches a lesson, is critiqued and shown a videotape, then reteaches the lesson. In Chapter 1, several characteristics of microteaching which facilitate the training program's effectiveness and efficiency are outlined, and the application of microteaching to special education is discussed. The Special Education Microteaching Clinic is described in Chapter 2 in terms of micro-lesson and course content compatibility, off-campus and on-campus studios, micro-lesson scheduling, the trials-to-criterion cycle, staff training, and personnel. The three micro-lesson components (the lesson protocol, an evaluation checklist, and a modeling or demonstration videotape) are reviewed, and suggestions for critiquers (graduate students who observe, critique, and advise trainees in technical teaching skills) are listed in Chapter 3. Provided in Chapter 4 is a checklist for equipment required to produce and view a micro-lesson in a one camera studio. Included among appendixes is a list of 20 special education micro-lessons in such areas as behavioral interventions, gross motor training, and token reinforcement. (SB)
