Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, v20 n1 p83-89 2016
Researchers have opined that pedagogical skill of the teacher is a powerful force. This study investigated variables that are required to cultivate effective pedagogical skills for teaching basic science and technology (BST) in Ogun State Primary Schools in Nigeria. A survey research design was adopted. A total of 148 teachers across the state were sampled. Three instruments were used: (a) Teachers' Time Management Observational Scale (r = 0.81); (b) Teachers' BST Content Knowledge Test (r = 0.96); (c) Teachers' Pedagogical Skills Observational Schedule (r = 0.84). There was no significant difference between the original and the reproduced correlation coefficients. All the teacher variables had significant total effects on teachers' pedagogical skills.
