Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested in a recent post
"Effective Teachers Need Pedagogical Content Knowledge" [Hake
(2013)]. The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: Phil Sadler alerted the PhysLrnR list to "The Influence of
Teachers' Knowledge on Student Learning in Middle School Physical
Science Classrooms" [Sadler et al. (2013)] online to subscribers at
<>. That article suggests that "a teacher's
ability to identify students' most common wrong answer on
multiple-choice items, A FORM OF PEDAGOGICAL CONTENT KNOWLEDGE, is an
additional measure of science teacher competence." [My CAPS.]

That *pedagogical content knowledge* is important for *effective*
teaching was emphasized in Lesson #7 of "Lessons from the Physics
Education Reform Effort" [Hake (2002)] at <>:
"Teachers who possess both content knowledge and 'pedagogical content
knowledge' are more apt to deliver effective instruction."
