NZC Online Newsletter

One for my Kiwi readers as they begin their week…

2 December 2016
View this email in your browser
Kia ora and welcome to the November/December newsletter for NZC Online. It’s designed to keep you up to date with new ideas, resources, stories, and research to help you give effect to the national curriculum in ways that best address your school context. This is the final email newsletter for 2016 – we look forward to connecting with you again in the new year.
What’s new?
From the blog: Learner agency
Students have a sense of agency when they feel in control of things that happen around them; when they feel that they can influence events. This is important for learners to develop. Our latest blog post unpacks learner agency and how we can support students to be active participants in their learning.

Curriculum story: Authentic learning in our community
Oturu School is a rural full primary school in Northland. Oturu school encourages hands-on opportunities for its pupils – focusing learning through connecting to the community, authentic learning, place-based curriculum, and Community Problem Solving (CmPS).

Take another look…
“As students journey from early childhood through secondary school and, in many cases, on to tertiary training or tertiary education in one of its various forms, they should find that each stage of the journey prepares them for and connects well with the next. Schools can design their curriculum so that students find the transitions positive and have a clear sense of continuity and direction.”

The New Zealand Curriculum, pg 43

As another year draws to a close, it’s timely to focus on the adjustments and transitions that students are making along their school journey. NZC Online resources you may like to revisit to support you in this include:

  • Transitions This blog will guide you in ensuring positive transitions for your students and their families.
  • Students at the centre
    This video shows positive transitions being created by getting to know students and building on their prior learning, their strengths, and interests.
  • Transitions between school settings
    This NZC Update is designed to help schools ensure positive transitions, with continuity and clear direction, for learners in years 7–10.

Being Competitive in Tomorrow’s Workforce

The year was 1989. We saw the birth of the World Wide Web, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the television debut of The Simpsons, and my epic walk onto the stage to receive my high school diploma. As I proceeded to college, I used the skills that I had learned in high school: doing […]

Posted: 29 Nov 2016 09:00 PM PST

Exploring the consequences of charter school expansion in U.S. cities

Bruce Baker, Rutgers University, studied charter school expansion for the Economic Policy Institute. He found the following effects of charter school expansion: (1) District schools are surviving, but under increased stress; (2) Charter expansion is not driven by well-known, high-profile operators; and (3) Charter schools are expanding in predominantly low-income, predominantly minority urban settings. Baker’s report includes recommendations for policymakers thinking about improving charter school laws.

What the Best School Districts Do Right: Four lessons for better district-school coherence

Posted: 20 Nov 2016 09:00 PM PST

Susan Moore Johnson, Harvard University, studied school management approaches in five large urban school districts. Her team found that: (1) Principals are central to establishing and maintaining coherence; (2) Centralized policies and practices succeed when they are continuously informed by those inside the school; (3) Coherence in school management requires the knowledge and expertise of leaders at all levels of the system; and (4) Achieving coherence depends on trust.
