Teaching Better, Together: Literacy Coaching as Collaborative Professional Development
Mraz, Maryann; Salas, Spencer; Mercado, Leonardo; Dikotla, Masennya
English Teaching Forum, v54 n4 p24-31 2016
This article draws from the combined experiences of the authors as teacher educators in very different parts of the world to describe the stance literacy coaching represents for English language teaching (ELT) contexts. They begin by defining how literacy coaching is portrayed in the research literature. They continue with a model of four broad coaching roles and follow with a series of possible formats for sharing teaching. Finally, advocating the generative dimensions of reflective practice with other professionals, they encourage pre-and in-service teachers and teacher-leaders to consider literacy coaching's potential to create spaces for professional development.
