An Island in Time
by Philippa Werry
An Island in Time is about Matiu/Somes Island in Wellington Harbour. The text contains three articles, a timeline, and a glossary (which applies to all three articles). Using the book as a whole (over a series of lessons) provides opportunities for students to make connections across the different text types as well as with their own experiences. The key theme to explore across the three articles is how different people have viewed and used the land and how this has changed over time.
