Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

This fun and engaging game helps to reinforce and introduces students to the Maori language. The games shuffle ability assures that no two games are ever the same which means you can use the same resource multiple times. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy

Parent/child - Give me strength

Parent/child - Give me strength

This is an intervention aimed at students who suffer from low confidence, anxiety, phobias and are generally lost in their world. It differs from many of the programmes because it focuses more on them and how they navigate their world; aiming to establish triggers to their behaviour and addressing them, giving the student skills and tools to escape from their negative world. PARENTAL NOTES These students tend to be unsure of themselves and extremely vulnerable; so managing them through this intervention programme will be a delicate task. Your will know what your child goes through a little, but maybe not their triggers and thought processes. In order to effect change we must consider all things which contribute to a situation including our part in any one situation; in one of the most important relationships of your life you can help or hinder without realising. The ultimate aim is to effect positive change and instill more confidence in your child; addressing their issues and offering support and guidance where needed. WHY THIS INTERVENTION? Does your child exhibit any of the following behaviours? Withdrawn/loner Expressing fear or anxiety Cries often Expresses worthlessness Self injury/harm Avoids certain situations due to anxiety **This is a difficult one as some of these children ‘hide’ very well and can be highly functioning students apart from certain aspects of their life. I worked with one student who was in the ‘popular’ gang, but who suffered from one of the worst cases of anxiety and phobia I have ever seen. So just bear in mind that some may ‘act out’ and exhibit different behaviours. LENGTH OF INTERVENTION The sessions are divided into roughly one hour x 6 weeks plus a follow up session, however, depending on the age and concentration level of your child you could split the sessions further. Each session will have 3 worksheets to complete, you could do one at a time. BASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTION SESSIONS How strong am I? - Getting to know you basics, with an emphasis on feelings and emotions. What pushes my buttons? - Seeking out possible negative events and issues which may have influenced the anxiety and phobia. What is my go to response? - Establishing what the ‘normal’ behaviour is and discussing alternatives. What are my triggers? - Looking at what/who may be triggering the situations, feelings and difficulties. How do I want to be? - Continuing the reframing and alternative positive framework for the future. The way forward - Cementing the positives and making plans for future issues. Follow up - General, but ongoing positive focus.

My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

Old Sarge here with a few words of wisdom. During the past several weeks there has been a drastic increase in violence towards police. As a retired police officer, I am appalled by what I have witnessed. To date it seems that the media as a whole has turned a blind eye towards the actual good that police perform and instead has focused on their own agenda. What about the police officer that digs in his pocket to help someone in need? Not newsworthy. The police officer that pulls a family from a burning building before the fire department arrives? Nope, they don’t make the headlines. The police officer that volunteers their time to assist community development? These things don’t get any published acknowledgment, so it’s like they don’t exist. And this isn’t even the first time in recent memory things went down this path. Let me tell you a story from my life in a blue uniform. In 1992, I was a young Police Sgt responding to a large fight in progress. This was 2 weeks after the riots in Los Angeles that happened in response to the Rodney King verdict. The never ending press coverage showing mob mentality was deeply etched in everyone’s minds. You can reason with an individual but when you get a group together, you get a mob mentality that can’t be reasoned with. I arrived at the scene and found there was a violent mob of approximately 300 people. This was not a mob attacking random individuals though. They werent burning and looting buildings. This was two rival fraternities that decided to have a rumble. They were battering each other with sticks and bats and batons. There were injured and bloody people everywhere.

Political cartoons

Political cartoons

A lesson used in a Senior Authority English class to teach students how to analyse visual images in preparation for the QCS test. It allows students to practise their use of the following core skills or common curriculum elements (CCEs): CCE 5 Interpreting the meaning of pictures; CCE 33 Inferring; and CCE 43 Analysing. This lesson provides recent political cartoons from Australian cartoonists David Pope (from The Canberra Times) and Mark Knight from The Herald Sun. Many are about the Double Dissolution election or the recent census but there are some about the great barrier reef and privatizing medicare. This lesson provides a brief overview of the history of political cartoons in Australia. It reveals how they work and what can be learned from studying them. It revisits the concept satire and defines many of the persuasive / satirical devices they use (e.g. symbolism, caricature, labels, analogy, irony, juxtaposition, and exaggeration). It has a few example analyses and then gives the students questions to ask themselves when analyzing a political cartoon. Students then answer these questions using the cartoons provided (mostly about refugee issues).
