Steps of Micro-Teaching

A standard micro-teaching involves various steps:

  • Orientation: Beginning with a free and fair discussion of the following topics, the student-teacher should be taught the appropriate theoretical foundation for microteaching:
  1. Concept of micro-teaching.
  2. Significance of using micro-teaching.
  3. Procedure of micro-teaching.
  4. 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:
  1. Analysis of instruction into its individual teaching skills.
  2. The debate on the purpose and significance of various training techniques.
  3. 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.
