Micro teaching is a teaching method which is especially used in the pre-service training of teachers and it aims to train prospective teachers by making systematic trials in terms of their teaching behaviours. However, because of various reasons, some problems are encountered in the implementation of this method. In this research, it is aimed to evaluate the status of the use of micro teaching method, according to opinions of the primary school teacher candidates.
