    • Session 8: Developing your school and subject knowledge

      In order to become a secondary school teacher, you will have studied your main subject (or a closely related one) to a high level. This is important: teachers need to have a good understanding of the subject they teach. However, they also need to understand how to teach the subject: they need pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). PCK is the knowledge that teachers hold about how to represent their subject to learners, taking into account their interests and abilities; it describes the ‘special’ insight that good teachers hold but that subject experts might not (Shulman, 1986).
