FIELD STUDY 3
Rationale

Field Study 3 is a one unit course. It is the third stage of the sequential approach of the extended practicum program. FS 3 links with the 6-unit Principles of Teaching I and II in the professional studies. FS 3 gives the pre-service teachers the opportunity to practice child-friendly attitudes as they observe the applied principles, methods, strategies, approaches to teaching, the art of questioning, and skills in responding to questions. Indicators of effective teaching and learning shall be carefully observed.
It is expected that pre-service teachers will learn from their observations and can practice these observations through micro-teaching. Micro-teaching involves the PST in working with small group of learners in three ways: tutorial teaching, remedial teaching and enhancement teaching.
In the first mode of micro-teaching, the pre-service teacher provides tutoring sessions under the guidance of the cooperating teacher. This is done with 1 to 3 learners per teacher, while in the second mode, the remedial teaching is provided to 3 to 5 learners. The final mode of micro-teaching shall demonstrate a particular strategy in presenting a lesson in enhancement teaching. A microteaching lesson guide shall be prepared by the PST’s with the guidance of the Cooperating Teachers. The PST’s are required to use technology in the preparation and delivery of instructional materials.
The micro-teaching activities may be conducted either during or outside of regular class hours but must be under the guidance of the Cooperating teacher.

FIELD STUDY 3
Course Description

This course is designed to enrich the students’ experiences in developing and utilizing appropriate technology to facilitate learning through microteaching. It shall also provide exposure and hands on opportunities in the use of instructional or communication technology in tutorial, remedial, and enhancement teaching. Tutorial teaching focuses on the application of appropriate tutoring skills like explaining, demonstrating, providing feedback and checking understanding. Remedial teaching starts from the difficulties of the learners where interpretation, explanation and demonstration of relevant points are done. Enhancement teaching is a practical strategy of augmenting a lesson incorporated in microteaching. Microteaching is the application of being a child-friendly teacher. This includes addressing student-diversity through gender-sensitivity, inclusiveness, and non-discriminating traits by the pre-service teacher.
Course Objectives: At the end of the course, the pre-service teacher is expected to:
1. Have applied the principles of teaching in tutorial, remedial and enhancement activities.
2. Have used appropriate technology by selecting and preparing the teaching materials that best suit the needs of the learners.
3. Have developed and utilized instructional materials appropriate to a chosen lesson in microteaching.
4. Have made reflections in their journal writings indicating realizations and insights related to the microteaching experiences and their use of technology in it.

The Teacher and The Learner

Teachers are an important part of the learner’s educational environment. Without them, the other elements of the educational environment would be ineffective, for they guide, direct, and stimulate the learners in their goal seeking (Bent, et al., as cited by Aquino, 1988).
The learner is the subject of the schooling process. Every learner is a unique personality. The teacher, therefore, takes into account his/her varied intelligences, interests, emotional stability and task-readiness along with his/her levels of aptitude and degree of maturity.

Checklist of Learning Resources in School and the Use of Technology

Technology in teaching is the development, application, and evaluation of systems, techniques and aids to improve the learning process.
In the classroom, this refers to the utilization of learning resources such as overhead projectors, audio-visual displays, recorders, computers, LCD and internet facilities to improve the effectiveness & efficiency of teaching, and enhancement of learning.
In this activity, Technology refers to the observed learning resources/materials utilized by the cooperating teacher and PST to enhance process.

Learning Content No. 3
Microteaching

Microteaching is a scaled-down teaching encounter in which the teacher focuses on a group of 3 to 7 learners. It aims to enhance the knowledge, skills or understanding of the identified learners. FS 3 is done during regular class hours or outside the regular class hours through tutorial, remedial, and enhancement teachings.
The Pre-service Teacher must know their subject matter and use appropriate tutoring skills such as explaining, demonstrating, questioning, giving feedback and checking understanding. The PST must develop and utilize instructional materials appropriate to the microteaching lesson.
Pre-service teachers need to identify where students have difficulties. From here, they will interpret, explain and demonstrate the relevant points.
CTs should identify the focus of the enhancement activity for this purpose. The Pre-Service Teachers should demonstrate a particular strategy in presenting the lesson. After the first enhancement teaching, evaluation follows. The lesson shall be improved and adapted in the second enhancement teaching. Selection of teaching materials should also be improved to suit the needs of the learners.

    What is reflection? Reflection is the examination of personal thoughts and actions. For practitioners this means focusing on how they interact with their colleagues and with the environment to obtain a clearer picture of their own behaviour. It is therefore a process by which practitioners can better understand themselves in order to be able to build on existing strengths and take appropriate future action.
