ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the concept of master teachers, a crucial part of United States educational reform proposals in the 1980s, who would be given advanced leadership training to participate in education changes in each school. The difficulty of identifying candidates to become master teachers is discussed, as leadership evaluations need to be matched with content knowledge and expertise. Models of direct teaching, which is recommended by the U.S. Department of Education, are discussed in detail. The implementation of direct teaching is considered crucial for career advancement and promotion to master teacher status.
