- Orientation: Beginning with a free and fair discussion of the following topics, the student-teacher should be taught the appropriate theoretical foundation for microteaching:
- Concept of micro-teaching.
- Significance of using micro-teaching.
- Procedure of micro-teaching.
- Requirement and setting for adopting the micro-teaching technique.
- Discussion of Teaching Skills: In this step, the knowledge and understanding about the following aspect is to be developed:
- Analysis of instruction into its individual teaching skills.
- The debate on the purpose and significance of various training techniques.
- Discussion of the numerous teaching techniques that make up the component teaching behaviour.
- Selection of a Particular Teaching Skill: One at a time, you should practise your teaching techniques. As a result, the student instructors are instructed to choose a certain ability to practise.
- Presentation of a Model Demonstration Lesson: The application of a particular teaching technique is demonstrated or modelled for the trainees through textual materials, movies or videos, live models or charts, etc.
- Observation of Model Lesson and Criticism: The model lesson’s observation and any pertinent criticism provide the model lesson’s presenter with constructive critique.
- Preparation of Micro Lesson Plan: The preparation of microlesson plans for the practise of exhibited abilities is a requirement for student instructors in this level.
- Creation of Micro-Teaching Setting: This stage takes into account setting up suitable circumstances and offering suitable facilities for the use of instructional abilities.
- Providing Feedback: He receives feedback on how he uses the component teaching behaviours so that he may change them in the way he wants.
- Repetition of the Micro Teaching Cycle:This cycle is repeated until the instructor masters the skill that is being worked on.
