And in this the personality of the teacher counts for more than the method of teaching’ (Welton 1918:179). Power to teach was the nub of what these five propositions were trying to describe. It was a linguistic term frequently used by teacher trainers, inspectors and teachers when judging a teacher’s person, capacity and effectiveness. The notion of power to teach somehow welded together art, craft and science elements and embraced the personal, professional, practical and theoretical components which together formed the ideal of the good teacher.

If the combination of scientific method and practical experience was lacking in the earlier attempts to set education on a scientific footing, by the early years of the twentieth century teacher educators in England were calling for a science of teaching which was rooted in, not separate from, the art or craft of teaching. Previously, the gulf between teachers who practised the art or craft of their business, and theorists who developed erudite but inaccessible and remote theories had appeared intractable and formed the heart of a professional tension between theory and practice in teaching.

There was no place for oldfashioned, didactic ‘chalk and talk’ in this model of teaching. Teachers were required to determine the flow, pace and dynamic of a lesson and to respond appropriately to the needs of the class. According to Welton, ‘it is the power of putting oneself in the mental place and attitude of the pupils, that marks off the true artist in teaching from the mere mechanical grinder of facts and formulae. To know where the pupils are and where they should try to be are the two first essentials of good teaching’ (Welton 1906:57).
