              A reprint of collected essays for the "Set" series - includes Manaakitanga The Te Kotahitanga Effective Teaching Profile Russell Bishop and Mere BerrymanTe Kotahitanga is a project that seeks to improve the educational achievement of Maori students in mainstream schools. Throu...gh interviews with Maori students, their teachers and whanau, the authors learnt about the characteristics of teachers that made a difference. They have drawn these together into the Effective Teaching Profile. Listening to culture: Maori principles and practices applied to support classroom management Angus H. Macfarlane The Hikairo Rationale is an approach to behaviour management which encapsulates an amalgam of contemporary theory and traditional Maori discipline. It provides a conceptual framework for understanding the nature of classroom management, and locates culture at the centre of this framework. The rationale has its roots in a study of a special school which values inclusion and listens to culture, in its quest to facilitate and maintain a secure, democratic, and positive classroom environment. Praising Maori children: Getting it right Veronica Butterworth and Jill Bevan-Brown This article shows that generating nga- ara whakamihi (praise pathways) through a context of praise enabled Ma-ori students to feel safe and supported, both culturally and educationally, and that they were able to assimilate and then integrate the meaning of teacher praise.

              This book explores what constitutes successful schooling for Maori students in the 21st century. Editor Paul Whitinui has drawn together academic contributions from diverse fields of mtauranga (education), mtauranga hinengaro (psychology), whakaako hauora (health), akoranga takak...au-a-ora (sport and leisure) and others. The book aims to provide a critical, reflective and forward-thinking view of how schooling for Maori students can be improved. The writers canvas topics such as the importance of te reo, Maori pedagogies, culturally relevant assessment, education strategies to develop Maori scientists and creating a culture of care. Underpinning it all is a powerful call for recognition of Maori as culturally connected learners. This book is for researchers, policy makers, school leaders, and Maori communities looking at positive, creative and dynamic ways of improving schooling for Maori students. The foreword is by Dr Turoa Royal.

              Would you like your students to be excited when they read a new word and keen to work out its meaning straight away? This book will turn them into word detectives, ready to tackle any new word they come across. And when writing, would you like them to make sentences that have int...eresting and descriptive words like shamble, ravenous or meandering? Teaching Reading Vocabulary presents five research-based vocabulary strategies that every student can use: making use of context clues when reading; breaking words into meaningful parts and understanding the structure of the English language; creating vocabulary concept maps; exploring the multiple meaning of words and figurative language; and searching the dictionary and thesaurus to build knowledge of meanings, synonyms, antonyms and word origins. This book will be useful for meeting the National Reading and Writing Standards and links to the Literacy Learning Progressions. There are free-to-copy worksheets that will help students practise their vocabulary skills and also build their knowledge of the structure of the English language. Tom Nicholson is a professor of education at Massey University, Auckland, who specialises in teacher education, literacy and child development. He directs a reading clinic for struggling readers. He is a member of the International Reading Association Hall of Fame.
