Lope Pihie, Zaidatol Akmaliah and Hamzah, Ramlah (1997) Subject Matter Knowledge of Student Teachers: How Does it Affect Their Ability to Teach Entrepreneurship. Pertanika Journal of Social Sciences & Humanities, 5 (1). pp. 21-27. ISSN 0128-7702
This study investigated 64 UPM student teachers' academic performance and their perception of their ability to teach commerce and entrepreneurship topics in the living skills syllabus. The findings show that (1) there is a significant difference between academic programmes and academic performance of the respondents, (2) entry qualifications influence academic pelformance of the respondents, and (3) high academic performance results in high ability to teach accounting components. This study suggests that proper selection of vocational teacher trainees should be made to ensure beller li\~ng skills teachers. Selection should be based on experience in teaching living skills and satisfactory academic achievement. To produce professional teachers, teachers' subject maller knowledge should be increased by enrolling in several related courses.
