Microteaching impact on Student Teacher's Performance: A Case Study from Kuwait

Salwa Al Darwish, AbdulAzeez Sadeqi

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of micro-teaching technique in delivering the lesson to children whose first language is not English. It involved three first year English language teachers who have been teaching in elementary public schools for one year, a group of student teachers who are in their senior academic year preceding the practicum course, and the author who is senior teacher trainer. Participation in this microteaching study has provided a sense of validation for much of what these student teachers do and how they do it, which has resulted in ongoing critical reflection and peer discussion. Although initially the data shows a giving rise to anxiety among some participants, it has led to greater self-awareness and increased confidence in participants' own ability and expertise, and a endorsement of their teaching style and practice.
