The TTF Model To Explain PCK in Teacher Development.
Veal, William R.
This paper describes the development of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) in secondary chemistry and physics preservice teachers. Teacher beliefs are intricately tied to how they make decisions for implementing instructional strategies, and those beliefs aid in the development of pedagogical content knowledge. A model for pedagogical content knowledge development was constructed to include teacher beliefs as an important aspect of the "learning to teach" locution. Four female prospective teachers participated in the study. The data collection procedure included structured and semi-structured interviews, and the microgenetic method was used for observation of the development of pedagogical content knowledge.
