Curriculum Guidelines for Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori in English-medium Schools: Years 1-13
Ngā rauemi tautoko
These curriculum guidelines are linked to four resources that are intended to support and inspire teachers of te reo Māori as they design school and class curriculums to meet the particular needs, interests, and talents of their students.
- Te Whakaipurangi Rauemi is a collection of teacher resources that are available on the Te Kete Ipurangi website. The resources include valuable background information to support these curriculum guidelines for te reo Māori. They also include teaching materials that can be readily adapted to meet students’ individual needs. The site is intended to support teachers’ professional learning, so it will continue to develop in response to teacher feedback. Over time, it is intended to support the development of an online community of teachers who can challenge one another’s practice and support each other’s continued professional development.
- Te Reo Māori Lesson Plans is an extensive collection that is intended to support teaching and learning at each of the eight levels of these curriculum guidelines. Each lesson plan contains achievement objectives, related learning outcomes, links to reference material, suggested activities, and copymasters.
- Ka Mau te Wehi! (Ministry of Education, 2007) is a multimedia resource package that links to levels 1 and 2 of these curriculum guidelines. It is designed to be used by teachers of years 7 and 8 who do not speak te reo Māori and are unfamiliar with the pedagogy for teaching additional languages but would like to learn along with their students. The resource includes teacher notes, unit plans, and student worksheets. The package also includes two DVDs with waiata, scenarios, and explanations about tikanga Māori. In 2007, the package was sent to English-medium schools for students in years 7–8.
