Hi everyone and welcome back,


The first was changes to ESOL funding


and the was of the new and revised unit standards.


Julie Luxton also shared a link to Tapasā workshops and an article on  Four strategies to effectively support Pasifika students. Thank you Julie for starting us off with some great links.


Rachel asked a question about textbooks for year 11 students. I suspect that not many of use textbooks and that most teachers try and contextualise learning around topics and text types. Why not join the conversation and a share what works for your students.


Finally a quick reminder of changes to the archive for all communities. The TKI mailing list archives will require a username and password. Your username is now the email you used to subscribe to the list. Your password can be reset on the TKI Mailing list homepage. This is to protect the privacy of subscribers.

Have great week.
