Abstract
Teacher preparation programs are sometimes reported to have a lack of adequate provision of training transfer from university to school classrooms so that many preservice teachers are not prepared to have their field experience. This paper, thus, reports on the perspectives of EFL preservice teachers regarding the effectiveness of instructional coaching of literacy pedagogy within their practicum program with their university supervisor. Employing a qualitative approach, this study involved three preservice teachers who were placed in a vocational high school in West Java Province, Indonesia. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with each of the preservice teachers and reflective journals were also collected with respect to their thoughts and reflection to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the coaching process. The results of the data showed the preservice teachers’ voices about the benefits of instructional coaching. They also pointed out the weakness of instructional coaching. This study implies that practicum educators should make concerted efforts to share promising ways of coaching to enhance the effectiveness of supervision.
