Simulated Classroom Instruction: A Microteaching-Contract Approach.
Galvin, Kathleen M.
The Speech Education Department of Northwestern University is placing strong emphasis on a Simulated Classroom Instruction course designed to aid students in developing a philosophy of teaching and an understanding of themselves as teachers, specifically speech teachers. The course is intended to give potential speech teachers opportunities to: (1) Gain insight into their decision to teach while building a personal philosophy of teaching; (2) Increase their ability to observe and analyze student and teacher behavior in learning situations; (3) Try alternative teaching behaviors to aid real and simulated classes to reach certain goals; (4) Identify and analyze their own strengths, weaknesses, and preferences for various teaching behaviors according to specified learning situations; and (5) Prepare and execute strategies for strengthening personal weaknesses of teacher behavior on an individualized basis. The program has now entered a third phase in which greater synthesis of readings and behavior is attained coupled with a new emphasis on the effects of teacher behavior on "learner" behaviors.
