“I chose to teach my students about netball for two main reasons: First, I realised throughout the year that I had covered many male dominate sports which I was interested in but no female dominant ones that my students might be. Second, a lot of my girl students are big basketball fans so with the slight similarities in the game I thought it may be something they would be interested in.
hen this one first went up I did actually see some girls voluntarily reading it during break between lessons. I had never seen any of my students read any of my previous posters. So maybe in that sense, this particular one was a hit. This poster was sent out to all of the state public junior high schools in Hachinohe.”
