This survey was conducted at Kenyatta University and the sample was drawn from third year student teachers of the academic year 1985/86. It was a survey and report on the effectiveness of microteaching as a preparatory skill for secondary school teaching. Microteaching at Kenyatta University has not been explored in the sense that not much has been done to find out how effective it is in preparing pre-service teachers for secondary school teaching. This study was therefore timely and its purpose was to try and find out the effectiveness of microteaching as a preparatory skill in pre-service preparation of student teachers. The effectiveness was investigated through the questionnaires specially prepared for student- teachers which were mainly based on review of related literature on microteaching as was initiated and used at Stanford University, United States. Some information concerning microteaching at Kenyatta University was also collected through the interviews of some lecturers in communication and Technology Department. The researcher used a sample of 80 student teachers drawn from the following departments: Business Education, Zoology, C.R.E. and Home Economics. The result of this study is therefore, limited basically to Kenyatta University situation.
