My Inquiry for 2018

This is one of the identified Achievement Challenges for the Manaiakalani Community of Learning.

Raise Māori student achievement through the development of cultural visibility and responsive practices across the pathway as measured against National Standards and agreed targets for reading Years 1-10 and NCEA years 11-13.

I will mainly target my senior classes who are working towards NCEA. One class is Year 11 students working on Level 1 DVC and the other class is a mixture of Year 12 and 13 students working on Level 2 and Level 3 DVC.

My Inquiry this year as a CoL teacher is.....

What and who...

Support my senior classes to understand and use subject specific literacy and vocabulary to enable them to access higher levels of NCEA achievement.
I will also work with my junior classes so that they have more knowledge when they reach Level 1.

The how...

We will work through project based tasks that are specifically targeted towards literacy and vocabulary.

This will be through the use of online tools for teaching and learning and through a pedagogy based around SOLO taxonomy.

It will also be through the implementation of elements of Kia Eke Panuku, especially Kotahitanga and Ako, where the students can work on certain tasks together to build confidence.

The measurable outcome ...

This is targeted towards achieving the school focus of  16+ credits at Level 1 and 14+ credits at Level 2 and 3 for each subject that the students take.
This work is also to enable more access to merit and excellence levels on the NCEA DVC standards.
