Novice and Expert Teachers’ Content-Related Pedagogical Reasoning


In this exploratory study, we seek to contrast the content-related pedagogical reasoning shown by prospective and experienced teachers – i.e., their reasoning for or against the use of subject-matter representations that draw on content knowledge or pedagogical content knowledge. We conducted think-aloud interviews with seven prospective teachers and seven experienced teachers based on a situation of planning to teach with a specific task. The teachers’ pedagogical reasoning was analysed by means of content analysis. The data showed that expert teachers engage substantially more in content-related pedagogical reasoning than novices. In particular, expert teachers’ reasoning is predominantly based on their knowledge of content and students and on curricular knowledge.
