Assessment Task 3 Criteria Weighting: 50% Planning Assignment
Learning Outcomes 1 & 2
This is an exploratory planning assignment designed to assist you to explore how you could integrate mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and Te Reo Māori (Māori language) into your planning. There are five parts to this assessment:
- Identify an appropriate Māori focused topic for teaching (10%)
Scope the breadth of your chosen theme/topic by researching a range of relevant resources (500 to 750 words).
For example: If your theme/topic is Te Ngahere (The Bush) you might include Māori mythology, values and practices concerning the bush; Māori medicinal practices and uses; Māori material culture from plant resources (waka building, carving, weaving and so on). From these initial ideas, you will consider the ways that you could develop your topic into interesting learning activities and experiences for your students.
- Identify a range of resources for your selected topic (2.5%), and write an abstract on three of the most relevant educational resources for teaching and learning (15%)
Provide a list of at least 10 resources for your topic. The list should include relevant and authoritative sources including primary source materials, school journals and school resources, educational websites (a maximum of 3 websites). Write an abstract on three of the most relevant resources you have identified. The three abstracts should each be 150- 250 words long.
- Write three demonstrable/assessable learning intentions for your chosen topic (5%)
What learning will be promoted in relation to this topic?
- Using ONE of your learning intentions, develop two connected learning activities (15%)
Using a template (which will be provided), develop two connected learning activities (approximately 20- 40 minutes for each learning activity). Identify the year group the activities are planned for and include appropriate Māori language and content that will be taught and/or incorporated in your activities.
- Attention to presentation, referencing, spelling, grammar and punctuation (2.5%)
Separate to your list of educational resources in part 2 (above), your assignment needs to be correctly referenced (APA is the preferred style) with a reference list provided at the end of your assignment. Te reo Māori spelling and grammar also needs to be correct.
