Te Reo Māori 

 

Year 9 Te Reo Māori    (9MAO) 

This course is for students who have studied little or no Te Reo Māori at intermediate school.  The students learn to communicate in Māori about themselves, introducing family members, pets and likes and dislikes.  The second topic is about kura/school, and learners will develop basic conversation skills around the timetable, favourite classes, and different areas of the kura.

Tikanga Maōri/Māori customs are taught in unison with the language.

 

Year 10 Te Reo Māori    (10MAO) 

These topics focus on the learners' world, starting with the micro (Glendowie) and moving to the macro (Auckland), finishing off with future aspirations.  Tikanga Maōri/Māori customs are taught in unison with the language.  Topics are as follows;

  • Taurere/Glendowie: Local Māori stories, and surrounding area of the kura
  • Tamaki ki Rāwhiti/Living East Side: Local Māori history, hobbies & fun time
  • Tamaki Makaurau/My Auckland: Hapu & Iwi/Local stories, landmarks, region
  • Tōku Ao/My World: Ōku wawatā/My aspirations

These are assessed through unit tests.  We cover each of the four MYP criteria twice over the year.  These criteria are listening, reading, writing and speaking.

 

Year 11 Te Reo Māori    (11MAO) 

Topics start to inform learners with a deeper Māori perspective.  They include:

  • Kupe and the Polynesian Migration
  • Matariki - Māori Astronomy
  • Ngā Puia - Local Volcanoes, local stories
  • Rēkohu/Chatham Islands - Researching the Moriori people

With guidance students will begin to develop writing and speaking skills, where they can organise ideas and thoughts regarding each topic in te reo Māori, becoming more familiar with resources to help construct appropriate language.  Learners are beginning to transfer skills from one topic to another.

During the year students have unit tests and internal assessments each term which will focus on the four key skill areas - listening, reading, writing and speaking.

 

Year 12 Te Reo Māori    (12MAO) 

Topics explore a deeper range of Māori perspectives such as:

  • Tāne me ngā kete Matauranga - How light and knowledge came to the world
  • Ngā Ātua Māori - Who are the Māori Gods and are they relevant today?
  • Ngā momo waiata - Studying Māori writers or artists through music and lyrics
  • Ngā pakanga Māori - Māori land wars and how they inform local stories.

Students will further develop writing and speaking skills, where they independently organise ideas and thoughts regarding each topic in the target language, using a variety of resources to construct sentence structures.  Students are able transfer language acquisition skills from one topic to another.

Students study three topics (standards) that count for 18 credits towards Level 2 NCEA.  Topics are more guided, with growing independence toward research.
