"Are We Allowed to...?" Teacher Autonomy and Interactive Teaching in the Literacy Hour
Merry, Roger
Education 3-13, v32 n3 p19-23, 31 2004
This article examines a key factor of the National Literacy Strategy, interactive teaching, and looks in particular at how it may be affecting teacher autonomy. It traces the development of this approach in the Literacy Hour and describes a research project which showed that many teachers have their own sophisticated ideas about interactive teaching but remain unsure about what they are actually required to do, a situation potentially threatening to their autonomy as professionals.
