Abstract

Literacy instructors are encountering accumulative challenges in today`s classrooms. Large-scale high-stake assessments and managerial/parental expectations have doubled the pressure on teachers to produce high-achieving literacy learners. One of the chief aspects the teacher training programs have been focusing on lately has been the notion of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). This paper provides an overview of the PCK and how it can be used optimally in classrooms. This article is concluded by some suggestions and arguments on the reciprocal correlations between PCK and effective practice.

Keywords: Literacy teacher, pedagogical content knowledge, teacher training, teaching reading
