Is it difficult to maintain te reo Māori in your total immersion environment? Do you find that students often use English? What are the obstacles that inhibit the flourishing of te reo Māori in your classroom? This workshop seeks to address common struggles in maintaining te reo Māori in total immersion settings. We will discover ways to encourage the use of te reo Māori and visit a range of strategies to support learning and teaching in Māori medium environments. Drawing on a wide range of experiences from kaiako throughout Aotearoa, Te Turaki Taupā will help to break down barriers to maximise language output and fluency.
He uaua rānei te ū ki te reo Māori i tō akomanga? E kaha rangona ana te reo Pākehā i ngā waha o ngā ākonga? He aha rawa nei ngā taupā e aukati ana i te rere matomato o te reo Māori? Hei urupare pea tēnei awheawhe i ētehi uauatanga o te ako i te taiao rumaki reo Māori. Ka tūhuratia ētehi rautaki, ka matapakihia ētehi kohinga whakaaro i ngā kaiako o te motu, ka tāutu hoki i ētehi ara e piki ake ai te kōrerotia o te reo Māori i tō ake kura. Me aha e noho rangatira ai te reo Māori ia te rā? Māu anō ngā taupā e turaki, ko tā mātou he taki āwhina!
