Delivery of a micro-teaching session on a new subject
As part of your teacher training you are expected to give a micro-teach on a subject you have not delivered before. This could be a hobby or personal interest, the choice is yours. Topics chosen have included making cards, a favourite book or film, yoga...However, what is important is that you have some knowledge and confidence with the topic, so that you can concentrate on the actual presenting, teaching and learning.
The purpose of the micro-teaching are to:
•Gain experience of time management, managing learning and learners •Use a range of teaching and learning activities in a safe environment •Allow for feedback from an experienced tutor and/or peers and •Provide an opportunity for reflection and evaluation of own practice and performance. Using the micro-teaching for those with current teaching practice allows an opportunity to try something different as well as helping with time management. To teach effectively it is important to work through the stages of preparing and planning, delivering and evaluating in order to develop own professional practice. 1 Preparing and planning the 15 minute micro-teach sessionUse evidence gathered beforehand, informed by all PTLLS units, to identify your specific subject content and learners’ needs for your micro-teaching session. You MUST base your planning on appropriate time management within the time allowed so you do not try to do too much in the limited time. •Setting up for the micro-teach = 5 minutes
•Delivering the micro-teach = 15 minutes
•Evaluation feedback from learners = 10 minutes
•Micro-teaching session = 30 minutes total
Use this information to decide the aim (what you want to achieve) and objectives (what you want your learners to be able to do) for your micro-teach...
