Connected Webinar

This webinar was produced for the 2012 National Primary Science Week.

Kate Potter and Melanie Winthrop showcase the Connected series – what the series aims to do and how the student books support students to engage with real-life science- and technology-related issues.

The webinar outlines key changes to the series in 2012, in particular, the alignment of the student books to a single level of the New Zealand Curriculum and the addition of a table inside the cover that indicates the reading year level of each article.

The webinar also provides information on the structure and content of the revised teacher support materials, including the guidance they provide on ways to support students with the literacy challenges presented by the texts. By addressing these challenges, students will access the science- and technology-related concepts and ideas the texts present.
