Student Teacher Knowledge and Its Impact on Task Design Student Teacher Knowledge and Its Impact on Task Design
Results of the study indicated that the student teachers used their common content knowledge when they lacked sufficient knowledge in other domains, especially specialized content knowledge, to perform a particular job of teaching. There was often a decrease in the cognitive demands of a task when it was modified by the student teachers. These drops were often associated with a lack of specialized content knowledge.
