New NZ anti-bullying resource

Posted by: Jeannie 25 Jul 16

Hello Northland networks

I’ve just heard about this newly launched, NZ anti-bullying website created by the Bullying Prevention Advisory Group (BPAG) which is made up of a number of government and non-government organisations.  It may be something to be aware of and share in your school if not already known.

Have a look at it - it is nicely designed, clear and simple, and the videos are good too.

Cheers, Jeannie

Storymapping

Posted by: Jeannie 22 Jun 16

Hello Northland Networks, 

At the network meetings earlier this term I mentioned an activity from Marama at Manaia View School Library.

Marama finds that it can be helpful after reading a story aloud to have a little talk about it, to encourage active listening, to recap and share some highlights, to check for understanding and to use some of the language of talking about books.

Teaching Shakespeare

Posted by: Jeannie 10 Jun 16

Hello secondary school librarians and teachers

If you have English teachers at your school who are teaching Shakespeare, you may be interested in sharing this link to a free downloadable resource from the UK Literacy Trust called “Mark the Bard!” commemorating the 400th year of Shakespeare’s death this year.

Hello again Northland Networks,
