Revitalization of Teacher Character Through Pedagogical Content Knowledge

Yenny Anwar


Character education becomes a necessity because education not only makes students intelligent minds but also emotionally intelligent. Character formation in learners can only be done by teachers who character as well. The character teacher always strives and strives to develop the potential of her intelligence to improve the learning process in her classroom by integrating content, pedagogy and moral values. This integration is encapsulated in Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK). PCK is an integrated collection of knowledge, concepts, strategies, and values that teachers develop in teaching situations. The ability of PCK teachers and prospective teachers will progress, through the stages of PCK Pre, Growing PCK, and Maturing PCK. These developments are different for each individual, some are growing quite rapidly and some are not. Some of the factors that influence the development include the role of teachers or lecturers who provide inspiration for prospective teachers, the ability and internal motivation of teachers and prospective teachers, teacher assistance guardian and lecturers and the frequency of teaching. To facilitate the development of prospective teacher PCK’s, the teacher education model needs to be graded and structured in advance to provide experience to prospective teachers to interact and gain experience in school, IE by observation stage, preparing lesson plans with teachers, Co-teaching, and Real teaching.

Keywords: Character education, Pedagogical Content Knowledge, Pre PCK, Growing PCK, Maturing PCK.
