We've run reading challenges for tamariki for years. This year, it's your turn: the Teachers Reading Challenge is open to all teachers, librarians, and school staff.
Join your school team to accumulate the most pages read during the competition period (20 Nov onward) and win class sets of books from generous publishers, or even a Writers in Schools visit for 2024. You can also use the Challenge to kickstart your text choice for teaching next year - all titles in our teacher-compiled 'Reading Stories from Aotearoa' resource will earn you double pages!
Select a school and see how your team-mates are stacking up!

Children of the Rush: Book 1
Would make a great year 9 text to do some narrative structure teaching, some context of the gold rush, some discussion of racism and greed and other themes.
