NCEA L3 Te Reo Māori

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Matua B. Christian

This course is based on Level 8 of Te Aho Arataki Marau mo te Ako I Te Reo Māori. 

At Level 3 students will be researching the history of the Māori Language, tracing it's origins from the Pacific through to the effects of colonisation and efforts to revitalise it. This forms the first part of their writing portfolio. Students then move on to studies on Māori Politics, the history and development of modern haka and waiata, deeds of our tūpuna and their own hopes and aspirations.

This course is a University Entrance Subject,  and includes UE Literacy.

Students will also continue to expand on their ability to introduce themselves in formal and informal situations, building on their mihimihi and supporting their kōrero with relevant whakataukī and tauparapara. Students continue to build on their conversational language as well as develop their ability to craft longer pieces of writing.  

Kauapapa (themes) include, Te Rauoratanga o te Reo Māori, Ngā Tūpuna, Haka & Waiata, Te Ao Torangapū, Hākinakina, ANZAC, Matariki, Te Wairau.

Students are also encouraged to take part in special events such as Ngā Manu Kōrero and will learn supporting Haka, Waiata, Karakia & Mōteatea.
