Teachers Resources

Welcome to the teachers resources page.

These pages are especially for teachers and librarians to assist you in the promotion and teaching of literature in schools and to help foster a love of good books and reading in children.  Novels, non-fiction, class set suggestions, teacher reference books, books for preschoolers: you'll find them all here.

Education News

Anh Do is one of Australia's best-loved storytellers so expect students to race to read his brand new and electrifying book, E-Boy: E-Boy 1. And to help you help your students get the most out of it, we’ve produced special E-Boy: E-Boy 1 Reading Group notes to be available on this website on the day of book’s release, March 17. Another title that is a must for all primary school libraries (and perfect for a fresh approach to ANZAC Day class discussions) is Anzac Girl by Kate Simpson and illustrated by Jess Racklyeft. Our outstanding Teacher Tips for this title are available now and easily downloadable.  Older readers will love Astrid Scholte’s The Vanishing Deep, a new YA fantasy from the author of last year’s phenomenal Four Dead Queens. And lastly, we highly recommend all educational professionals have a look at Teaching Writing, a comprehensive introduction to teaching writing to upper primary and young adolescent students in a screen-based world.
