Notice reference #: 1HAh4t

Join Chloe Stantiall and Greta Dromgool, as they share their experiences exploring mātauranga as Pākehā educators in English medium classrooms.

Chloe Stantiall is a Y5–6 kaiako at Silverdale Normal School. She worked with Associate Professor Maurice M.W. Cheng as part of a Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) funded research project Envisioning student possible selves in science: Addressing ‘plant blindness’ through place-based education.

In this webinar she draws on insights gained from this experience including a week-long teaching and learning sequence about kōwhai. Chloe then developed teaching resources based on the learning she did with her class, and these will be shared and unpacked during the session.

Greta Dromgool works for the Science Learning Hub and has taught at secondary and intermediate level. She has worked alongside teachers and departments to support mana ōrite mō te mātauranga Māori over a range of contexts.  

Come and listen as Greta and Chloe discuss what worked, what didn’t, and what benefits they observed for their students. The last part of the webinar will be available for Q&A and you are encouraged to ask questions in the registration form, or via the chat in the live session.

This PLD opportunity will be valuable for primary and junior secondary school educators.
