I’ve just received my copy of Poetry in Multicultural Oceania, in which one of my poems appears, which is cool for me. This is an educational resource edited by Vaughan Rapatahana, aimed at years 6-9 and beyond. It’s packed with interesting poems and perspectives, as well as thought-provoking questions and guidance by Vaughan.
“Reflecting the great diversity of cultures in the region, Poetry in Multicultural Oceania is enriched with a multitude of Aboriginal Australian, Maori, Pasifika, Asian and other voices in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. From this foundation it offers a teaching resource to develop students understanding and appreciation of poetry, with activities including vocabulary, language use and structure, reading and understanding, and evaluation.” – Essential Resources
