Students will critically examine the historical repression of the Maori language/indigenous languages and the growth of language revitalisation movements in the twentieth century. They will review the key educational and Maori development drivers in Maori/iwi led movements: Kohanga Reo, Kura Kaupapa Maori, Wharekua, wananga and bilingual/immersion programmes. They will assess the role that teachers can play in creating and shaping communities of language learners and develop appropriate strategic plans. Note: this course will be taught through the medium of Maori.
