An Abbreviated Microteaching Program.
Ford, Jerry D.
Although microteaching has proved to be a valuable training tool for preservice education majors, some microteaching programs have been curtailed primarily because of the time and expense of maintaining the facilities. An abbreviated four-lesson program for microteaching can be conducted effectively with minimum time and moderate costs. The first lesson is a lecture which focuses on the basic structure of any lesson. The second lesson emphasizes on-task instruction. The third lesson provides practice using the process of questioning, while the fourth gives practice in using a variety of question levels. Preparation procedures for each of the four lessons are described, including suggestions for student objectives, content outline, teaching strategy, and materials and equipment needed. Critique forms accompany each lesson. These evaluation sheets provide a clear means for checking teaching behaviors exhibited by the student with a simplified grading and point system. (JD)
