  • The procedures used for assessing the specific knowledge and skills needed for decoding are not contextualised. However, learners need to apply and practise their developing skills and knowledge to real texts so that they see that decoding is purposeful and meaningful. This is unlikely to happen if learners are just using worksheets.
  • Comprehension and vocabulary instruction should use real texts. This means that educators need to consider the contexts – the texts and activities – that are likely to motivate and engage learners.
  • There are DVDs available to support educators to think about appropriate contexts as they work with Maori and Pasifika learners. Click here for Engaging Māori learners or here for Engaging Pasifika learners.
