    Tohunga

    SJ cover image.

    by Potiki

    illustrations by Andrew Burdan

    This intense and dramatic “slice of life” story recounts the time when a mother had to take her sick child in secret to a tohunga. It is set after 1907, when the New Zealand government made it illegal for tohunga to practise rongoā Māori. “Tohunga” provides rich material for both Māori and non-Māori students to explore themes of cultural similarities and differences.

    Painting the Town

    SJ cover image.

    by Renata Hopkins

    After the earthquakes in Christchurch, many public facilities were suddenly not available. The article, “Painting the Town” describes how artists have provided people with other ways of experiencing the city by using the walls and streets as their “gallery”. In doing this, they have given people experiences that can help them cope with the difficulties of living in a ruined city.

    Up the Pipe

    SJ cover image.

    by Fiona Terry

    “Up the Pipe” shows real scientists in action, working on a project that has direct relevance to our daily lives. Dr Louis Tremblay and his team investigate the sludge at sewage treatment plants and go “up the pipe” to find out what goes down household drains. They want to raise public awareness of the harmful chemicals we may be using every day and convince us to use products that are less harmful to our environment.

    Match report.

    Match Report

    SJ cover image.

    by Kate De Goldi

    illustrations by Gavin Mouldey

    This tale of a boy telling his grandfather about a cricket match sounds simple, but the clever text structure and extensive use of the language of cricket makes it a very rich text that can be revisited many times for different purposes. The theme of relationships between the generations is conveyed powerfully and in ways that students will recognise.

    The new zealand wars.

    Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa/The New Zealand Wars

    SJ cover image.

    by Ross Calman

    “The New Zealand Wars” describes the wars fought between 1845 and 1872. The wars were about who controlled the country and who owned the land. This long and fascinating article explains the circumstances of the wars, including the areas and tribes involved. There are good general descriptions of the main confrontations and key players, both Māori and British. The text is written by a Māori author who presents a balanced account of the wars and their impacts.
