ב. תוכן הקורס:
Micro-teaching is a means of developing particular skills in teaching English as an additional language (EAL). Through videotaped segments of teaching, students will practice the various principles and methodologies introduced in the parallel course English Teaching Methodology.
Over time Micro-teaching will allow students to demonstrate progress and to gain confidence in their teaching skills. The reflection and constructive feedback process in which they will engage will contribute to their growth as teachers.
Micro-teaching gives the student teachers a chance to incorporate and implement what they are learning about teaching into actual teaching practice. The video-taped lesson segments give the student teachers the opportunity to see themselves in their teaching role, as their students would see them. These Micro-teaching sessions encourage student teachers to engage in self-evaluation of their teaching, and to use their peers as a source of feedback while working to improve their teaching. Furthermore, the student teachers will benefit from each other's micro lessons and gain helpful ideas and insights which they, in turn, may adopt and try out during their own practice teaching. Through micro-teaching, the students will not only gain confidence, but will also be better prepared for work in schools.
The micro-teaching tasks will be based on the topics introduced in the course English Teaching Methodology. Among others, the topics will include teaching activities built to develop the four main skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking, as well as ways of teaching vocabulary, literature, and grammar in a non-native language setting. [For a complete list of topics, see Syllabus of the English Teaching Methodology course.]
Please note: This course is part of a three-fold program for training English teachers. English Language Teaching Methodology, Micro-teaching and the Practicum are the core courses, and they must all be completed in order to achieve the requirements of the degree and to be fully equipped to teach English in the Israeli school system.
