Abstract

With the national spotlight firmly focused on Australian students attaining benchmark standards in literacy and numeracy and on the capacity of teachers to facilitate student achievement in literacy, questions of effective teacher development have emerged. This study investigated how professional development, which is consistent with the principles of effective practice, builds capacity in teachers. By examining the development of teachers' understandings in the Reading Recovery professional development program, key aspects of teacher development were identified and some suggestions given regarding the preparation and support of literacy teachers generally.
