    Mental Health Education and Hauora
    This resource supports teaching children and young people about mental health, wellbeing, resilience, and interpersonal skills. It was written with support from the Beeby Fellowship funded by the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO and NZCER.

    Teachers will discover ways to enhance student learning in four broad areas:

    personal identity and wellbeing
    communication and relationships with others
    social issues and social justice (especially against discrimination and exclusion)
    health promotion and action.
    The lesson plans work for multiple year and curriculum levels, and are particularly useful for Years 7–11 health education. Teachers will find relevant content for the following health education topics:

    personal identity and enhancing self-worth
    stress management
    friendships, relationships, and communication
    effects of discrimination and stereotyping on mental health
    support of self and others during times of difficulty
    equity issues that support the mental health of others and society
    drug education and alcohol education (for example, the content on assertive communication, decision making, personal values)
    leadership and effective communication.
    The activities can be extended for senior secondary students and modified to be accessible for students at lower levels. Notes throughout explain how teachers can adapt, apply, and use the activities and ideas to achieve the intended learning outcomes and develop key competencies.

    Each section begins with specific achievement objectives, but teachers are free to develop their own. For this reason, achievement objectives for each activity are not specified. Instead, teachers can use the matrix showing links with the New Zealand Curriculum.

  • Mindful Teacher, Mindful School Improving Wellbeing in Teaching and Learning
    Mindful Teacher, Mindful School Improving Wellbeing in Teaching and Learning
    "This is a book clearly written by an educator who knows mindfulness in schools from the inside. The strongest evidence for this is that Hawkins never gets carried away. He recognises that mindfulness is not a panacea, that to implement it successfully in schools is a slow and steady process, and that above all it must begin with the teachers themselves. But Hawkins also recognises how transformative mindfulness can be, having experienced it so profoundly himself as an educator in many different contexts. His anecdotes give it plenty of colour (my favourite is 'Billy and the Mosquito'), whilst the practical guidance - Chapter 7 on implementation for example - makes it of tremendous practical value. " - Richard Burnett, Co-founder and Director, Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP)

    Former school teacher turned mindfulness consultant Kevin Hawkins truly understands the joys of teaching and the desire to make a real difference in the lives of students, as well as the challenges and risks of burnout that most teachers experience on a daily basis.

    With this guide to mindful practice, teachers new and experienced can learn how to use mindfulness in their own professional and personal lives as well as how to incorporate it in their teaching to support student wellbeing.
    Combining theory with practice and illustrated with real life stories, this guide will show readers: * what mindfulness is * the research and scientific evidence behind it * how changing the way you approach situations can transform the way you feel * how to manage stress, and look after yourself * how teaching mindfully can help your students * what mindfulness can do for the culture in your school

    Packed full of DIY exercises, activities to use in the classroom and links to resources and further reading, this inspiring book will support experienced and new teachers to maintain a healthy work-life balance and thrive as a teaching professional.

    New Zealand Dyslexia Handbook
    This is an up-to-date resource written with the aim of improving the literacy of dyslexic students. The authors are experienced university teachers and researchers with expertise in literacy. In putting the book and DVD together, they consulted with other university researchers, students with dyslexia, their parents, classroom teachers and principals. In this book and accompanying DVD aim to de-mystify dyslexia and show that there are many practical things classroom teachers can do about it. Dyslexia is mysterious to many people, yet it becomes easy to understand once you have some information about it. It is commonly ignored by schools and the community because of a lack of understanding, and people have taken on ideas that are not backed by research. This book aims to address this.

    Would you want to be a student in your own classroom? In Passionate Learners: How to Engage and Empower Your Students, author Pernille Ripp challenges both novice and seasoned teachers to create a positive, interactive learning environment where students drive their own academic achievement.
