With the fast development and wide application of information technology, the problem of how to cultivate highly qualified computer teachers for primary and secondary schools has gained more and more attention. To be a qualified computer teacher, systematic and firm theoretical knowledge in computer science is indispensible, but not enough. High teaching skills and capabilities are also needed. So how to design a practical and effective training system for normal computer majors is very important and meaningful. In this paper, we investigate the issue of professional ability training and evaluation for normal undergraduates majoring in computer science. First, we propose the basic structure of a computer teacher's professional abilities. Then, we discuss the purpose and main contents of the professional ability training as well as the associated approaches. A suggested curriculum for normal computer majors is presented after that. And at last, we propose a set of criteria for professional ability evaluation of the computer majors.
