Welcome to Golden Bay High Schools NCEA Wide Reading Wiki

This wikispace has been set up to provide lists of resources for our students when selecting titles for their Wide Reading unit and also provide suggestions for themed reading. Some of the pages may contain clickable links, which will take you to a blog post about that title. The titles mentioned in the Theme and Wide Reading lists, Other, Short Stories and Year Groups have been compiled from emails to the School Library listserv and our own lists. The reading lists are suggested titles only, please check with your English department if you are unsure of their suitability.

This wiki is available for use, or contribution to, by teaching staff, librarians and other interested parties. If you are interested in contributing to this wiki contact me by sending me a message through the wiki. Don't forget to tell me a bit about yourself.
