An Exemplary Introductory Course For Secondary Education Majors.
Stanford, Ronnie L.; Crew, Adolph B.
A description is given of a course for secondary education majors that is required in the sophomore year. The course combines techniques from microteaching and interaction analysis. A period of clinical experience is included, offering an opportunity for students to observe secondary teachers while acting as teacher aides. They thus became aquainted with the actual duties of the teachers as well as their classroom techniques and behaviors. The intensive study of teaching skills coupled with extensive clinical experiences produces a mutual reinforcing effect. The students relate both positive and negative secondary school teacher behaviors observed during their clinical experiences to the microteaching skills and interaction analysis study. It is felt that requiring this course in the sophomore year prepares them for a more rewarding student teaching period. (JD)
