Microteaching: An Integral Part of a Science Methods Class.
Pauline, Ronald F.
Microteaching, or peer teaching, is an activity that requires science methods students to plan, teach, and evaluate a particular lesson. The peer teaching activity, although obviously similar to teaching a lesson in a traditional classroom, enables the methods students to teach to a small group of their peers, thus easily receiving constructive criticism of the lesson taught. This paper describes preparation for peer teaching, deciding on the type of lesson and evaluation forms to use, self-assessment, and the post-peer teaching interview. The importance to the peer teacher of communication skills is stressed, and the teaching strategies that have proven most successful, namely, the Illustrated Talk, the Inquiry lesson, and the Process Skills lesson are described. The following five appendixes are included: (1) Communication Skills Performance Checklist; (2) Illustrated Talk Performance Checklist; (3) Inquiry Lesson Performance Checklist; (4) Process Skill Lesson Performance Checklist; and (5) Student Feedback Form.
