“Integration PCK: Modeling the Knowledge(s) Underlying a World Language Teacher’s Implementation of CBI”,
Foreign Language Annals, Volume 50, Issue 2, Summer 2017, pp. 458–476
According to this extremely well-researched article centers on understanding the knowledge embedded in a world language teacher’s enactment of content-based instruction (CBI) through the lens of a theoretical model inspired by Shulman’s 1987 construct of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). The model represents an adaptation of PCK that explicitly addresses the expanded set of content knowledge teachers need to effectively implement CBI. Findings suggest the model can inform the work of language teacher education and professional development focused on CBI.
