Abstract

There is a consensus about primary and lower secondary teacher education in that Faculty of Education is actively responsible for preparing them for their future teaching careers. However, a struggle between Faculty of Science and Faculty of Education has still been continuing to come up with an agreement for upper secondary teacher education. For example, the undergraduate students attend subject matter courses in Faculty of Science and then take pedagogical (content knowledge) courses in Faculty of Education at most of the developed countries, i.e. USA, Germany, England. Despite the fact that this program seems to have been time efficient for pedagogical courses, this has lacked of motivating them to become the upper secondary teachers. In fact, motivation and enthusiasms to be a teacher play a significant role to learn how to teach.
