The new NZCALNE qualification allows for a more explicit focus on the different frameworks that should underpin our teaching. This includes frameworks from a Maori worldview perspective.
One of the easiest Maori frameworks to communicate is Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapawha framework. This got removed from the previous update to US21204, but we kept using it anyway.
There are other frameworks, however. Vote here and let us know what you think about this. Any thoughts to the comment section please.
Honestly think Te Whare Tapa Wha should be included in any NZ Literacy exploration. Let’s stay holistic!!!
I agree…! There are others, but this one just lends itself to easy communication to others
Having said that though, we can probably make te Whare Tapapwha the default framework, but still give others the option of using another one to allow for organisations that have their own special character and related kaupapa system. Can be a “both/and” set up probably.
