Bright Sparks

This service is for Arts and English teachers and literacy programme developers in secondary schools. With a focus on processes, this service aims to empower teachers to deliver the New Zealand Curriculum (Ministry of Education, 2007) utilising strategies for effective pedagogy (p.34-35) including inquiry based approaches to teaching and learning.  

Word Spark’s skilled and experienced consultants can also help you develop, write and implement schemes of work in junior and senior contexts, NCEA courses and NZQA Scholarship programmes in Drama and English.

We can support you individually, or work with you in your faculty team.

Practical workshops and webinars enable you to explore through productive dialogue:

  • Formative Assessment approaches, exploring the key competencies
  • Integrated and Inquiry Based projects
  • Teacher repositioning for shared learning
  • Writing for NCEA- exemplars, assessment schedules, moderation reports
