The purpose of the present study was to enlighten teachers’ metacognitive awareness of reading strategies. Several inventories concerning students’ metacognitive reading strategies have been developed but none of them refers to teachers’ metacognitive awareness. Teachers’ metacognition is the least explored area in education. The scope was to investigate teachers’ metacognitive awareness of their reading strategies via Metacognitive Awareness Inventory and Metacognitive Awareness Inventory for Teachers tools. During the study, 290 high school teachers from different regions of Greece participated in questionnaire procedure. The analysis of the results showed that teachers more often use problem-solving and global than support-type strategies. The analysis of both inventories revealed a higher significant correlation between regulation of cognition and metacognitive reading strategies. The findings of this study showed that teachers’ metacognitive reading strategies remain implicit. Furthermore, investigation is recommended.
