Flight simulators prepare pilots in training for the routine and extreme situations.  The simulators also allow flight instructors to assess how new trainees can fly the plane in a regular situation, how they respond to the changes of the conditions and to provide instant feedback. How can we use the concept of a simulator to help future teachers prepare for the challenges of a high school physics classrooms? In this workshop the participants will learn how one can use microteaching (microteaching happens when pre-service teachers teach lessons to their peers who play the role of high school students, the word micro does not mean short duration of the lesson) for this purpose. The microteaching involves multi-week planning, creating a lesson plan, assembling and testing equipment, and enacting the lesson in the classroom. Formative assessment of each step that pre-service teachers undertake in this process allows for instant feedback, corrections and improvements in the lesson.
