Biography

Marineke Goodwin is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education.

Research | Current

Marineke's research is focused on aspects of literacy in the primary school, specifically children’s writing and teachers’ knowledge about using writing assessment to inform effective practice.

The research above took place with teachers and students in South Auckland schools. The outcomes are relevant to the achievement of Māori and Pacific Island communities.

Marineke is engaged in research in the field of children’s literature and engagement in reading for pleasure; ie. the factors that students perceive have shaped their reading interests. Current research interests are also in the language experience approach in the junior school, visual language in the primary school, and eventually, a case study analysing the patterns of visual language throughout the schooling years for one child, a former reluctant writer.
