Abstract

Misconception/student difficulty is one of the student characteristics that should be known by teachers. Teachers should have effective knowledge and strategies to overcome these misconceptions and difficulties. In this sense, microteaching practices have an important place in the context of pre-service teachers’ ability to increase their knowledge and strategies and their developing professional experience. The aim of this research is to examine the microteaching of primary school mathematics teacher candidates in the context of student misconceptions and difficulties. The research design is in the qualitative reserch model and the case study method was used. The research data were obtained from the analysis of semi-structured interviews with pre-service teachers, prepared lesson plans and micro-teaching video recordings. The obtained data were analyzed by content analysis method. According to the results of the research, although different strategies such as pre-service teachers, group work and class discussion were used, the most frequently used strategy was the strategy of putting students on the board and dealing with misconceptions/student difficulties through sample questions.
