Finding Resilience Newsletter 5 - For Teachers

Kia ora koutou, it's Shelley here,

Welcome to the fifth and final Finding Resilience field trip newsletter. Read previous newsletters here.

1. Evaluation form 

  • If you haven't already please complete the evaluation form now on your MyLEARNZ control panel. 
  • Why?
    o We need your input to make sure we provide the highest quality LEOTC experiences and
    o Our sponsors need to know what you think of LEARNZ so they keep paying the bills (i.e. we want to keep LEARNZ freely available)
  • Forgotten your password? Recover it now.

2. Evaluation prize results

  • All teachers who submitted an evaluation by Friday 20 October went into the field trip evaluation prize draw.
  • The prize was a class set of topographical maps for the winning school's local area and a local hydrographic chart.
  • This prize was kindly donated by Land Information New Zealand LINZ.
  • Congratulations to: 
    o Helen Voice and her Year 5 and 6 class from Kaikoura Primary School!

3. Student self-assessments

  • Teachers, if you have finished with the online pre-test and post-test student self-assessment forms for this field trip, email barrie.matthews@core-ed.org to have your class submissions analysed and emailed to you. It's OK if just some of your students have filled them in or if they have submitted either self-assessment rather than both.

4. Field trip contributions

  • Please let us know how you used the trip with your class so we can encourage other teachers. Email your ideas to me shelley.hersey@core-ed.org, e.g. a web conference summary, photos of artwork, Blog links etc. and we'll add them to the website.

5. More 2017 virtual field trips and new field trips for 2018

  • You can also enrol in other LEARNZ field trips for 2017 and 2018.
    o check out the field trip chooser to find out more about the field trips on offer.

Ka kite anō,

Shelley
LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher
