Manaiakalani Secondary Connect
Teaching aids to support NCEA literacy
Our first Manaiakalani Secondary Connect for 2023 was held on Wednesday, 8th February.
Developing students' reading skills for secondary school students is a key priority in 2023 with the focus on preparing them for the new literacy assessments which includes the recently released, literacy pedagogy subject guides.
This session highlighted the benefits of ensuring students have a toolbox of reading strategies they can be applied to any text in any genre or subject area.
Viewing the pedagogical guidelines to support the Big Idea (Making sense of written texts), Pip Gorrie-Lawn shared her strategy from her MIT Inquiry to help develop learners' metacognitive skills for reading unseen texts across all subject areas and curriculum levels.
