"Teacher" was first published in 1963 to excited acclaim. Its author, Sylvia Ashton-Warner, who lived in New Zealand and spent many years teaching Maori children, found that Maoris taught according to British methods were not learning to read. They were passionate, moody children, bred in an ancient legend-haunted tradition; how could she build them a bridge to European culture that would enable them to take hold of the great joy of reading? Aston-Warner devised a method whereby written words became prized possession for her students. Today her findings are strikingly relevant to the teaching of socially disadvantaged and non-English-speaking students.
