Teachers should know how people learn, how the human brain functions, how memory operates and how a brain develops with age and be able to apply this to teaching their subject.  However, research indicates that teachers tend to teach the way they have been taught.  This article describes the balance needed by future teachers between content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge.
