On the eve of March 20th, The Second Microteaching Final Contest, which was held by the Faculty of English Education, took place in B8. Dean Zhou Fuqiang, subaltern SEC Yi zongyong, Director Zhoujie，Counsellor Jiangjian and Dr. Ed Nicholson were present. Many teachers as Gu Keping, Liyue, Yang Manzhen, and Huanghui acted as judges for the contest.
The rule of the contest is that each group has fifteen minutes of microteaching, one minute of showing points and two minutes of Question and Answer. The judges give score according these three parts.
Firstly, a video which introduces the player groups caught the audiences’ attention. After a moment, Dean Zhou Fuqiang appeared on the stage, announcing the beginning of the contest. He said,“Everyone can teach, but not everyone can teach well.”
Dean Zhou Fuqiang: Announcing the beginning
Group CAI was the first group to show their teaching skills. They tried their best, using games, such as Word Matching, Acting Time to draw the students’ attention. Not only the students, but also the audiences were entertained by their teaching.
Unlike CAI, Group TT chose Senior 2 as their target students. Their teaching objective was to prepare the students for their college exam as well as evoke their interests in learning English. “They did a good job, and it would be better if they asked questions a little bit slowly,” One of the judges commented.
TT:Look,our teaching plan!
CAT was the group which faced most obstacles throughout their teaching. The whiteboard fell off twice. But fortunately, because of their vivid performance, the students and the audiences gave them laughter’s of kindness. They chose competition to rejoice the students, and it really worked.
Group CK focused on teaching their students“How to be a good child.” They explained different ways of making requests, invited students to role-play and interview. But their instruction was a bit hard for their target students to understand.
CK:Look,our future interviewer!
Then Group Cudy showed their faces on the stage. Their teaching contents include Type of Clothes, Match Clothes to body, DV Time, Dialogue to cut price and so on. They put the educational theories they had learnt, such as the TPR theory, into practice. They were so professional that everyone seemed to be involved in it.
Cudy: Now,let's have a review
The last group was Expecting, the only one that was not from the Faculty of English Education. Creatively, they chose pregnant women as their target students. They taught some daily expressions in a funny way. During their teaching, the most effective part was Test Time, in which they played a video created by themselves and students were asked to fill out the missing new words. In this way, students could not only master new words, but also enjoy in learning.
Expecting: Listen,our babies' expectation
When all the groups had finished their performance, subaltern SEC Yi zhongyong went on the stage and gave his comment on the contest. He mentioned that every group had a lively, powerful and impressive performance. He said, “I hope MT will become more popular and everyone will do a good job in studying teaching.”
Subaltern SEC :Let me say something
Then it came Director Zhoujie,“The organizer of MT this year has improve a lot, comparing with last year”. She mentioned that professional teacher doesn’t mean fashion, but we should be creative as teachers. Afterwards, Dr. Ed Nicholson pointed out that“This can not be a class, but just a performance”. He hoped that we could apply the theories we learnt in class.
The result came out that Group Cudy was the final winner. And “Teacher” Tianjing won the prize of “The most professional teacher”.
The Second Micro Teaching Final Contest was proved successful. Let’s look forward to the better performance of the third one.

首先出场的是CAI组合。他们利用“Word Matching”,“Acting Time”等游戏调动学生的兴趣。不仅模拟学生，现场观众也被她们的教学技巧深深吸引。
系主任周洁也上台发表了自己的评论，“与上一届的MT大赛相比，这次邀请赛的组织工作有了很大提高。”她认为一个专业的老师没必要咬住潮流不放，但必须把创意紧紧握在手心。随后Dr. Ed Nicholson指出此次大赛只可以作为一种展示，不等于真正的课堂演练。他希望我们能把课堂上学过的理论应用于实践。
