Non-Māori teachers teaching Māori language in English medium primary schools

Non-Maori primary teachers teaching Maori language

Alice Patrick's PhD thesis reports the findings of original research examining the role that non-Māori teachers can play teaching te reo Māori in English-medium primary schools, as per the expectation in the New Zealand Curriculum (Ministry of Education, 2007). The research investigates non-Māori teachers’ beliefs and practices, while uncovering some of the factors that can influence the teaching of te reo Māori in such schools. It also explores what Māori language materials the teachers use (or need) to help them implement their Māori language programmes – and their notions of what constitute ‘quality’ Māori language resources.
