    Abstract

    This column focuses on the innovative strategies some teachers from Kazakhstan and Oceania are using to overcome the challenges they face. In Kazakhstan, schools organize reading days to encourage and inspire children to read. In the predominantly oral culture of the Cook Islands, Niue Island, and Rarotonga, teachers and administrators model reading for their students. They also create newsletters to communicate with remote schools and make their own books when resources allow. Despite the challenges faced by all of these teachers, they are finding success through determination and creative ideas.
