Part Four (Y10)


This part is only suited for Year 10 pupils due to the classification of the films and the more sophisticated content.

Contains 30 one-hour lessons that have been scripted for easy use.

The manual uses the following DVDs that are based upon books:

  • Freedom Writers
  • The Last of the Mohicans*
  • The Boy in Striped Pyjamas
  • The Golden Compass

Includes the documentary, Planet Earth: Volume 1.



New activities include: The AVAILLL Quadrathon, Team Reading and Movie Making and Reading and Your Own Movie.

*Please note this film contains violence, however it is in context of the story and for that reason we have included it.

It is important to note that for use in high school, AVAILLL is designed for the students who are well below the average. For that reason, the lessons in this manual are not any more challenging than those of preceding manuals. The students at this age and beyond who are struggling with literacy appreciate the novelty of AVAILLL and being able to learn while having fun.

This is an exciting and unique approach to teaching literacy skills. Students watch engaging films with the subtitle feature turned on. While they Read/Watch the films they engage in activities to develop vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and spelling.

AVAILLL has been continuously researched for six years by an independent body of researchers at the University of Canterbury with excellent results.
