Appendices contain resource materials, questions and answers about the minicourse, teachers' daily schedule, time schedules for microteaching, tips for videotaping microteach lessons, suggestions for camera and microphone arrangements for microteaching, and checklists for operating and troubleshooting for the Sony and Ampex Videotape Recorders.
