Teacher knowledge...

Kebosanan yang melanda,
di samping ketekanan yang dirasai kerana final exam,
jari ni laju sahaja nak taip apa yang dipelajari sem nieh...
quite useful especially for teachers.

There are 7 teacher knowledge :

(1) Content knowlegde
Content knowledge is about knowing more about the subject that a teacher want to teach. Teacher must make sure that the subject/ topic have connections with other subject or topic. Content knowledge is divided by two which are substantive ( facts, principles, concepts, organized) and syntactics ( new knowledge).

(2) General pedagogical knowlegde
Pedagogical knowledge is divided by two which are specific and general. By pedagogical knowledge, teacher can choose or match the subject content with appropriate methods or strategies. We can say that general pedagogical knowledge is a principle/ strategies of the classroom management. Contain knowledge, belief and skills. Pedagogy is more about the subject itself where teacher must mastered the subject or topic in order to make sure the student can understand more about the subject or topic.

(5) Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK)
PCK is a domain of knowlegde that was different from both knowledge of the content and general knowledge of teaching. There are three knowledge bases; which are content, pedagogical and contextual transform understanding to the instructional form. PCK involves interesting and meaningful representations, integration of ideas, clear examples, helpful analogies, important connections and relationships between various ideas.
