The training of teachers has increasingly been the focus of critical inquiry in the field of education: What qualifications should be demanded of those entering the teaching profession? This book examines this crucial issue with an in-depth comparison of the classroom approaches and effectiveness of two groups of secondary school English teachers. Three of the six teachers studied in this book are graduates of a professional education programme, the other three, while equally well versed in subject matter knowledge, entered teaching without professional training. The book reveals that those with a teacher education background were flexible, open to innovative methods, and better able to comprehend the student's perspective. Those without such experience tended to rely on teaching techniques borrowed from undergraduate and graduate courses, or on memories of their own schooling. "The Making of a Teacher" is aimed at those curious about the theory and practice of classroom teaching and the role of pedagogical content knowledge. It should serve as a supplemental text in teaching methods and curriculum courses - not only in secondary English, but in other subject areas as well. The book also offers useful insights in the areas of staff development and school improvement.
