But it goes beyond this by fully exploring issues to do with subject knowledge in learning to teach, broadly accepting that an essential element of a secondary teacher’s identity is tied up with the subject taught. The book is divided into three sections: framing the subject – which defines subject knowledge and raises questions about business education and economics as school subjects teaching the subject – which looks at pedagogical, curricular and pupil knowledge business, economics and enterprise within the professional community – which focuses on the place of business education and economics within the wider curriculum and the teaching community. This book aims to provide stimulating assistance to subject specialists by helping them find ways of thinking about their specialism, how to teach with it and how to engage with what pupils learn through it.
