A survey of 100 teachers in one Ontario school board examined their literacy-related professional development preferences. The majority preferred short durations of literacy-related professional development. A small number did not want any literacy-related professional development. The most preferred forms of professional development were shared practice, mentoring, observation of colleagues, and collaborative lesson development. Preferences for form and content of professional development varied between subject areas and course types.
