Save Nouns Melulater: Modelling Books - how I use these to plan, teach and assess in my class Modelling Books were not around when I began my training to become a teacher. I didn't know anything about them really until 2005 when my school began their journey with the Numeracy Project. We had two facilitators come into our school to guide and support us in taking on the Numeracy Project, and part of that was demonstrating how to set up our modelling books and use them to aid us to teach a group of students. I credit Reshma (currently at Hautapu School) as being the Numeracy Project advisor who really started my journey with modelling books and my love affair with them. Anne, who was with the Literacy Project in 2006 and 2007 when I was at a school that was involved, and Tonia, the RTLit from Te Awamutu, have also influenced how I use modelling books for guided reading as well.
