Secondary Literacy Coaching: A Macedonian Perspective
Sturtevant, Elizabeth G.; Linek, Wayne M.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v51 n3 p240-250 Nov 2007
Vocational high schools in the Republic of Macedonia are making efforts to add content literacy and learning strategies to their curricula through Secondary Education Activity (SEA). SEA is a collaboration of the government of Macedonia, the International Reading Association, the American Institutes for Research, and the United States Agency for International Development to provide schools with updated curricula and to enable teachers to move from lecture-style instruction to instruction that included active learning and links between the school, community, and workplace. As part of this project, educators participated in workshops led by international volunteers and 16 Macedonian classroom teachers selected to become literacy coaches. The trained educators have subsequently led training at their own schools. This article focuses on the perceptions of the 16 new literacy coaches about their own professional development and dilemmas they have had to overcome. (Contains 2 figures.)
