    Praise for Read to Succeed

    ‘Wow! Absolutely amazing.’
    Sheena Cameron.  The Writing Book

    ‘An excellent resource!’
    Aaron Wilson.
    Woolf Fisher Research Centre

    ‘I have seen many resources made for my subject but this is absolutely fantastic in presenting the necessary skills a young person should have, and interweaving them into the rugby topic. I work primarily with ESOL students, many of whom are rugby mad, and also Maori and Pasifika students who are not experiencing success in their mainstream English classes. This resource will be so beneficial to them, I can’t wait to use it. Very cleverly done, the students will not even realise they are learning the skills that are so important and necessary to them with all the scaffolding and interesting tasks they have to do!’
    Shirley Rowe.
    New Plymouth Boys’ High School

    ‘Gob smacking. Brilliant job.’
    Robin Holding
    Takapuna Grammar School

    ‘Very engaging resources.’
