Chapter: A Story of International Cooperation: Teacher Learning for European Literacy Education (TeL4ELE)

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.41262


The growing success of R2L in Sweden attracted the interest of Danish educators, so Claire Acevedo and Ann-Christin Lövstedt applied for funding from the European Union for a multi-national training program. They eventually recruited five teams of educators from Sweden, Denmark, Scotland, Spain and Portugal for a three-year project, known as Teacher Learning for European Literacy Education, or TeL4ELE. In Chapter 9, Claire Acevedo outlines how the TeL4ELE project unfolded and spread R2L pedagogy into the European education context.
