Place-based Education in our Backyard: Te Tūranga o Ōku Waewae
Join Rosalie Reiri, Patariki Grace and Te Mako Orzecki to raise awareness of the importance of teaching cultural narratives unique to Aotearoa.
This CORE Breakfast seminar will:
- introduce participants to place-based education and the importance of teaching cultural stories in order to affirm Māori culture, identity, and heritage
- locate participants from where their feet stand in their own backyard and recognise the influences of people, place, and historical events that have shaped who we are today
- grow awareness of place-based education, its potential to localise learning and to localise the school curriculum
- help realise that cultural narratives are as much for non-Māori as they are for Māori.
In the optional and interactive follow-up workshop, participants will:
- experience a variety of activities about place-based education and how these could be used in the classroom
- gain knowledge of local place names and stories within the Wellington region
- develop approaches that engage tamariki in stories that affirm their culture, identity, and heritage.
Come along and kick start your day with professional learning at this CORE Breakfast – find out more.
