  • Issue 90 - Capabilities are curriculum weaving tools
    • Abstract: Hipkins, Rosemary
      This article is based on the talk I gave at the NZATE conference in Christchurch in the July break. My plan for the talk was to draw together many threads from almost a decade of research on the implementation of NZC, with a specific focus on how the key competencies have been understood and enacted. This set the scene to discuss a different way to think about weaving key competencies into the curriculum. Here I introduced the idea of "capabilities" as weaving tools, and illustrated their potential with two examples set at different levels of the English learning area. I concluded by briefly introducing a small set of capabilities that sit at the heart of rich learning in many different parts of the curriculum.

  • Issue 90 - "The skies are painted with unnumbered sparks"
    • Abstract: Orr, Cynthia
      This line from Act 3 of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar' was the title for the workshop that I co-presented at this year's NATE (National Association of Teachers of English) conference at Stratford-Upon-Avon in June. It seemed necessary that regardless of the content, the title of a workshop presentation to teachers of English at a conference held in Shakespeare's hometown come from one of his works. However, unlike the machine at the Globe theatre, which sends out each of Shakespeare's plays as 140 character tweets, our title wasn't just a gimmick. For my co-presenter, Jenny MacDonald, and me the line captured the idea of the endless possibilities represented within the project we had been involved with and were to present on.

      To begin with a gentle linguistic irony found only in Aotearoa/NZ, kia ora koutou nga kai ako o te reo Pakeha. Thank you English Teachers for allowing me this key note address. You guys are important to me. You buy books - even my books, which is a bonus. With this in mind I think it fair, indeed I think it obligatory, that you should know what you are paying for.

    • Abstract: Powdrell, Margaux
      Attending 're: generation' the NZATE English Teachers' Conference as a beginner teacher was a moving experience. It was a fantastic professional development opportunity, bringing together like-minded English teachers who are keen to make a difference. In this article, I am going to provide a bit of background of my teaching career thus far in order to explain my response to my own experiences at the conference. I will also discuss how these experiences influenced me to change aspects of my teaching.

  • Issue 90 - My need to change
    • Abstract: Riley, Neil
      A change of school at the beginning of this year necessitated a change in my teaching style: I was back in a state school, back in front of students and back with a Year 9 English class for the first time in four years. It was a new beginning, an opportunity to regenerate. However, I did not want to abandon some useful practices and pedagogical approaches from my previous school, in particular, the focus on self-directed learning and the integration of e-Learning into my teaching and learning programme.

  • Issue 90 - An ontological view of IndigiZines within the secondary English
           classroom in Aotearoa
    • Abstract: Salsano, Marama
      The Western classroom is still very much a colonising space - scarred by memories of 18th century domination (Foucault, 1977) and the "sheer brutality meted out to generations of indigenous communities" (Smith, 1999, p. 68). This paper provides an early contribution to the use of IndigiZines within the secondary English classroom in Aotearoa and speculates on whether encouraging expression through such zines can begin to address the brutal effects of colonial rule. I will briefly consider the nature of 'story' for indigenous people, before outlining what zines are and how they might be used by indigenous and marginalised communities to resist Western ideologies. I then contemplate the extent to which stories contained in IndigiZines might offer indigenous and marginalised people more than the mere literalness of a story. And finally, I use a zine created specifically for this paper to reflect on the zine making process, after which I theorise about the possibility of using zines to bring indigenous Māori voices to the fore within the English classroom in Aotearoa.

  • Issue 89 - Empower our young people
    • Abstract: Bailey, Sophie
      Before I delve into the core content of empowerment that I want to discuss in this article, I would like to explore the context of 'young people'. In understanding that this article is written for an audience of Secondary School English Teachers, I will be focusing on the age of young people in secondary school - that is, ages 13 to 18. When engaging with young people between these ages, it is essential to comprehend that they are at a very crucial stage of their psycho-sexual development (WHO, 2010). Although this development differs from young person to young person, all young people are developing, defining and exploring their sexuality.

  • Issue 89 - Whakapapa as literary analysis within the NCEA English
           classroom
    • Abstract: Salsano, Marama
      Human existence comprises layers of interconnected relationships and commonalities, articulated as whakapapa within a Māori worldview (Barlow, 2006; Paipa, 2010), whereby whakapapa encompasses both the tangible and the intangible and views life as an interdependent activity (Te Rire, 2012). Here in Aotearoa, such connectedness and community participation is viewed by the Ministry of Education [MOE] (2014) as vital to the 'well-being and culture' of New Zealand schools. Thus, whakapapa and the understanding of relationships and interconnectedness, may be viewed as both crucial to a greater understanding of what it means to be human, but also as an essential component of the vision of the New Zealand Curriculum [NZC]: to produce young people who are "confident, connected, actively involved, and lifelong learners" (MOE, 2007, p. 8). Within the National Certificate of Educational Achievement [NCEA] classroom, it is therefore imperative that New Zealand teachers understand these wider connections, relationships and whakapapa since effective teachers teach "both subject matter and students. Ignoring either the curriculum or specific learning needs ultimately hurts students' chances of success".

  • Issue 89 - A syllogistic thesis schema - a planning tool for essay writing
    • Abstract: Harris, Matthew
      The Syllogistic Thesis Schema (STS) is a planning tool useful for teaching students clarity of thought and organisational structure. It can also help to persuade hyper-organised 'left-brained' students who think the subject of English lacks scientific rigour that there are firm laws of logic involved in the construction of literature essays - even if most of us employ them subconsciously.

However, for young people growing up in this increasingly connected world, where answers are only a Google search away and information is created through online networks, where does literacy fit in?

  • Issue 89 - Radical notions: Teaching in context
    • Abstract: Borrowdale, Laura
      As English teachers, we often approach our subject with a deep love of literature. Was it Shakespeare that led us here, or Jane Austen, or Haruki Marukami? We want to excite our students and infuse them with the same sense of excitement that we feel. So why do students so often get turned off reading, off writing, off 'English' while they are in our classrooms? Where do we, as people passionate about our subject, go wrong?

  • Issue 89 - Not the end of the world?: Hope in young adult fiction
    • Abstract: Higgins, Jane
      'The Hunger Games'. You may have heard of it. Also, the 'Divergent' series, 'The Fault in Our Stars', and 'If I Stay'. You know these stories: best-selling young adult novels, made into blockbuster movies. And, like a lot of young adult fiction, they are grim, dealing with dystopia, sickness and death.

  • Issue 89 - A youth perpective
    • Abstract: Hampton, Sofie
      Sofie is in her second of a Bachelor of Nursing at CPIT. She is passionate about young people's wellbeing, volunteering at 298 Youth Health Centre with Dr Sue Bagshaw and supporting young people in a mentor role. She also manages the finances for the Christchurch Youth Council. As an English teacher you are in a prime position to receive personal writing that may express deeply how a young person is feeling. This may feel a little daunting and maybe not even something you considered as part of your job, but if you look back at your years as a student at school, who were the teachers that understood you the best, cared the most and were the easiest to talk to? For me and many other young people it was their English teachers who were there during our darkest days.

  • Issue 89 - A conference reflection
    • Abstract: Els, Shani
      NZATE 2016 "Re:generation" did not disappoint. As a second year teacher who moved to Wellington from Christchurch for a sense of regeneration the theme of the conference seemed incredibly fitting.

  • Issue 89 - Mind your language
    • Abstract: McGilchrist, Iain
      In recent years, I've been very interested how language can be used in the classroom to better effect. Much of my PLD has been based on this and those of you who have come to my conference workshops may have heard me bibble on about this. In this article, I want to share ten ways you can use language tomorrow to help your students and yourself. You may recognise some of the material in this article. Hopefully some of it is new as well.

      Representation, Access, Authenticity, Identity, Appropriation, Inequality.

      These are terms that stimulate, motivate and frustrate the creative artists of the Pacific, and they are the terms that dictate my current course of study and the work of the Black Friars theatre company. Who has the right to tell whose stories?

  • Issue 88 - Shakespeare globe centre NZ young Shakespeare company tour 2015
    • Abstract: Malcolm, Julia
      Our friends thought we were a bit mad when we said we were volunteering to be chaperones for twenty-four youths to go to London for a couple of weeks. Why on earth would you want to spend your holidays doing that? Why on earth wouldn't we, was our response. We knew it would be tiring, we knew the responsibility was huge, we knew it would be challenging, we knew there might be tears but we also knew this would be something different, something special, and we would get to witness twenty-four fired up, passionate, funny, smart, focused kids experience something that potentially will shape their futures.

  • Issue 88 - 'Mana Moana': Ancient resources for new stories
    • Abstract: Mila, Karlo
      This article describes the personal journey of a reader and writer who is of Pacific descent growing up in New Zealand. It explains the experience of finding yourself either nowhere within mainstream literature or alternatively stuck - stereotyped - in someone else's story.

  • Issue 88 - Delving into the fourth genre
    • Abstract: Beaumont, Karen
      Described as the fourth genre, Creative Nonfiction is the term applied to nonfiction stories that are told in a creative way. Lee Gutkind, the 'godfather' of Creative Nonfiction, defines this form of writing as "true stories well told." Creative Nonfiction may appear in the form of a personal essay, journal article, biography or memoir but, as a nonfiction piece, the material included has to be factual and carefully researched; the reader has to trust that you are telling the truth. The means of conveying your ideas is what gives the piece its creativity. Approaching nonfiction writing creatively allows for greater freedom in the use of dialogue, first person narrative, contractions, particular points-of-view and ways of looking at the world. Imagery or metaphor may be included, and the structure need not be linear. Instead of a works cited list, a less formal series of notes, which allows for the addition of further information, might appear at the end.

  • Issue 88 - Mark Hadlow on Macbeth and acting for educational purposes
    • Abstract: Hadlow, Mark
      Any advice to young actors is - give it a go. If you've got what you think is acting ability, or some passion to be an actor, then give it a go. I mean go to a local theatre and say "I want to audition for something." It'll give them a feel for what it's like.

  • Issue 88 - Like... wise an hour with John Dennison
    • Abstract: Edgecombe, Mark
      Keith Lees' article in the back of the July 2015 'English in Aotearoa' made me hanker for more poetry in my classroom. It also made me think about some of the poetry highlights from my own teaching career - nothing to match his stealthy placement of Basil Dowling in the back of his room, sadly: I remember a group of Year 13s concluding - fairly swiftly - that Fleur Adcock was a whinger who wouldn't be happy wherever you put her, and I've read a fair stack of essays on Wilfred Owen's use of alliteration, but Keith's retrospective re-stoked in me the hope that it could be better than this.

      I'd like to preface my comments here by acknowledging that there are some concerning issues in New Zealand education and certainly a great deal that needs our attention as educators - and I'll come back to these at the end.
