A Micro Teaching cycle

Page 18: Micro Teaching

This involves the selection of the topic and related content of such a nature in which the use of components of the skill under practice may be made easily and conveniently.


Page 19: Micro Teaching

This involves the attempts of the teacher trainee to use the components of the skill in suitable situations coming up in the process of teaching-learning as per his/her planning of activities.


Page 20: Micro Teaching

This term refers to giving information to the teacher trainee about his performance. The information includes the points of strength as well as weakness relating to his/her performance.


Page 21: Micro Teaching

The teacher trainee re-plans his lesson incorporating the points of strength and removing the points not skillfully handled during teaching in the previous attempt either on the same topic or on another topic suiting to the teacher trainee for improvement.


Page 22: Micro Teaching

This involves teaching to the same group of pupils if the topic is changed or to a different group of pupils if the topic is the same.


Page 23: Micro Teaching

This is the most important component of Micro-teaching for behaviour modification of teacher trainee in the desired direction in each and every skill practice.
