RESEARCH, PLAN, DELIVER AND EVALUATE YOUR MICRO-TEACH LIKE A SEASONED PROFESSIONAL. THIS TEXTBOOK WILL HELP YOU TO PASS YOUR MICRO-TEACH FIRST TIME AND TO PREPARE YOUR MICRO-TEACH FOR TEACHING-RELATED JOB INTERVIEWS. Micro-teaching is an essential element of the Award in Education and Training (AET), forming part of the unit entitled: Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training. The topic is often covered as a short chapter in most textbooks and stops short of providing a step-by-step practical guide or providing useful guidance for preparing for teaching-related interviews, where a micro-teach session is virtually guaranteed as part of the interview and selection process. An effective micro-teach is well researched, takes account of the audience’s prior learning, knowledge and experience wherever possible, is meticulously planned, effectively practiced and delivered with confidence. It is then thoroughly evaluated and improvements and enhancements are carefully planned and executed before a future micro-teach or a lesson is delivered. This can be viewed as a form of continuous quality improvement. This textbook is aligned to recent changes in the further education and skills sector and shows you how to use such changes to inform your micro-teach research, planning and delivery and in this respect be on par with if not ahead of other candidates at interview. This textbook can be used by itself or as a complementary publication to the following textbooks by the same author: Achieving your Award in Education and Training: The Comprehensive Course Companion Or Achieving your Award in Education and Training: The Comprehensive Course Companion (Special Edition) The principal benefits of this textbook to the reader are as follows: It is written by an experienced practitioner with extensive experience of educational management, delivery, consultancy, quality assurance and of recruiting, appointing and mentoring lecturers in the public and private sectors; It adopts a very practical and systematic approach to the topic, reflecting current practice in the sector; It is clearly written and easy to understand, with lots of examples; It fully addresses each of the related unit learning outcomes and assessment criteria in a systematic way; It places the micro-teach in the context of all three units of the AET course and shows the inter-connections between certain assessment criteria, which will provide you with a more holistic view of the course; It is written for those undertaking a micro-teach as part of their course and for those preparing for a lecturing, teaching or training post; It shows you how to take account of relevant parts of the documents listed below when researching, planning and delivering your micro-teach: Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training – England Special educational needs and disability (SEND) code of practice 0 to 25 years Ofsted Common Inspection Framework and related inspectors’ handbook (for inspections from September 2015) Full lesson planning is also considered in the textbook, with the micro-teach session embedded in the full lesson plan for the purposes of completeness. This should prove to be particularly useful for teaching related job interviews This textbook is streamlined, thereby allowing you to make more efficient use of your time to learn, practice and develop your micro-teaching skills.
