I’m so glad I engaged Vanessa to write the teacher notes for the first two books in the Marlow Brown series. I have a teaching background myself and fully intended to write my own teaching notes for the first book, but with all my primary teaching experience being in the UK, I knew I’d need to get familiar with the the Australian Curriculum to do the job justice. This put me off! I just wanted to get on with writing the next book in the series, rather than battle my way through curriculum documents. Vanessa took the headache out of it for me once the second book was finished. She has written two very comprehensive sets of notes for me, specifically linked to the Australian Curriculum, but which I know will also be useful in any English speaking classroom, regardless of where in the world it’s located. My only regret is that I didn’t ask her to help me sooner!
Thanks for including a link to my website on yours. I’ve returned the favour on my Resources page, which also has links to the Marlow Brown teachers’ notes
