    The Treaty of Waitangi as a curriculum principle
    23 May
    Public discussion Created by CORE Education

    In Culturally responsive practice in Aotearoa, we shed a light on what it means to give mana to the Titiri of Waitangi in our schools - and in particular creating a place where Māori students (and their whānau) have a strong sense of belonging by what they see, hear and feel around them.

    In this 2min video, Janelle Riki talks about the Treaty of Waitangi - New Zealand's founding document and acknowledges how some schools may find it hard to know where to start, and also offers some suggestions about unpacking what the three principles of the Treaty: participation, protection and partnership mean for our Māori students and their whānau.

    The Treaty of Waitangi as a curriculum principle

    Schools are doing some magic things in regards to honouring the articles and principles of te Tiriti o Waitangi, as previously shared in this crowd-sourced presentation, but we'd love to hear from you.

    What one strategy do you bring to your teaching or leadership, that helps to keep the treaty alive? Please feel free to drop some ideas/experiences below.

    Keep an eye out, as we continue to bring you a collection of short videos (interview, presentations) from thought leaders and innovative educators about ideas, concepts and frameworks for ensuring our practice in schools is inclusive and culturally responsive.
