Curriculum Guidelines for Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori in English-medium Schools: Years 1-13
As students progress through the eight levels of these curriculum guidelines, they become familiar with an increasing range of vocabulary, increasingly complex language structures and text types, and more challenging contexts for the use of te reo Māori. The range and complexity of the achievement objectives increases from level to level.
The levels described in these curriculum guidelines do not coincide with traditional year levels or with students’ years of schooling. The age at which students begin learning te reo Māori will be one factor in determining what level or levels a class might work within during the course of one year. For example, many students in a year 7 class might work towards level 1 objectives only, but many students beginning to learn te reo Māori in year 9 might be able to meet the achievement objectives for levels 1 and 2 within one year. Students with prior experience in Māori-medium classrooms will be more proficient in te reo Māori and can be expected to be working at a higher level than their classmates.
