Level 1 Te Reo Māori
The Year 11 course will allow the students to apply a range of communicative skills in a variety of contexts that will enable them to express their thoughts in te reo Māori with accuracy, fluency, cultural integrity and gain an understanding of language revitalisation. They will develop self-managing skills and strategies that will enable them to know when to lead or follow, and when and how to act independently or collectively for the benefit of te ao Māori. They will be able to apply creative and critical thinking, as well as metacognitive processes to make sense of information, experiences and ideas which will inspire them to be lifelong learners of te reo Māori, in tandem with learning tikanga Māori. They will be able to strengthen their own identity, therefore, providing a strong foundation for them to create and nurture relationships with others and the environment.
The ideas, values and attitudes developed from a Māori worldview expressed through te reo Māori will enable students of Te Reo Māori to be culturally confident and competent to participate in and contribute to Māori language and culture revitalisation within their communities.
The course content will be based on contexts such as a formal acknowledgement (mihi) and response, a conversation, to give & follow instructions, or a variety of scenarios dependent on the teaching programme and the interests and needs of the students.
The essential language skills will be based on speaking and writing against NCEA guidelines.
