Subject Knowledge and Teacher Preparation.
Betts, Paul; Frost, Lorraine
Education Canada, v40 n1 p38-39 Spr 2000
A review of research on teachers' subject area knowledge and teaching effectiveness suggests that teachers' subject knowledge influences their choice of instructional strategies, creating a positive relation between knowledge and effectiveness. Greater emphasis on breadth, as opposed to depth, of subject knowledge will best prepare teachers to implement curricular requirements, especially for kindergarten to grade eight. (Author/TD)
