Your Voice, Your Choice: Tūranga Mua, Tūranga Tika

This secondary resource is aligned with Te Marautanga o Aotearoa - Tikanga-ā-Iwi, and is intended for use in Māori-medium classrooms.  By exploring the participation of Māori in decision-making in different environments over time, students will see that Māori have sought and been able to meet their physical, social, environmental and spiritual needs.

Principles

The learning activities in this resource will:

  • put the students at the centre of teaching and learning by using their knowledge and experience, and that of their whānau and community, in a way that promotes whānau, hapū, iwi and hapori
  • help the student to develop a high level of personal awareness by incorporating reflection time into activities to support critical and conceptual thinking
  • provide experiences that use a range of activities involving listening, writing, and cooperating with others, to help students achieve their potential
  • encourage the participation of whānau, hapū, iwi and hapori to share knowledge that supports the student         .

Values and attitudes

These learning experiences will also help students develop awareness of:

  • their personal values and beliefs
  • the values of their whānau, hapū, iwi and hapori
  • the skills needed to work cooperatively with peers.

Conceptual understandings

The resource is designed to develop the following conceptual understandings:

  • people participate in decision-making at different levels
  • individuals can act as a link between whānau, hapū, iwi, hapori and central government to increase the wellbeing of Māori
  • people can elect a rangatira to represent them in Parliament
  • individuals can improve the wellbeing of Māori by participating in the electoral process
