The School Journal supports students in years 4−8 to develop the knowledge and skills required to meet the reading demands of all the curriculum areas.
Teacher Support Materials
Teacher support materials are available for three items from each School Journal. Teachers can use these materials as a basis when planning how to work with similar texts that may not have specific TSMs.
TSM help teachers to use the selected School Journal item for a variety of instructional purposes, supporting differentiated literacy teaching across the curriculum. The new features of each TSM include:
Example and sample lesson plan

School Journal realignment
From August 2011, each issue of the School Journal will be aligned to either level 2, 3, or 4 of The New Zealand Curriculum. Each issue will be identified by the month and year of publication. The School Journal will no longer be issued in ‘Parts’ and ‘Numbers’.

The School Journal is provided to all primary schools. Replacement copies can be obtained from: Down the Back of the Chair.
