This TRCC/NZHTA course will bring together at Waitangi history teachers from around the country to participate in a conference focused on both our shared past, as embodied in the place of Waitangi and the best pedagogical practice to transfer the learnings into teaching programmes for the classroom.
The outline of the course:
- On the Monday Ngati Kawa Taituha (of Ngati Kawa and Ngati Rahiri) will host us at the Treaty Grounds and Te Tii (Waitangi) Marae as part of our field trips and excursions. A choice of four possible afternoon trips are (TBC): Kerikeri (Hongi Hika's Kororipo pa, and the Stone Store and mission house); Russell (Maiki/Flagstaff Hill and Pompallier House); Ruapekapeka battle site and waka paddling experience.
- Teacher-led workshops focused primarily on pedagogy.
- Seminars by the Ministry of Education discussing the NCEA review and 2022 curriculum change, and what this means for teaching history.
- Best practice workshops run by the National Moderator
Speakers Confirmed to Date: The opening keynote speaker is Dame Jenny Shipley (co-coordinator of Tuia250). Additional keynotes are by leading historians such as Dame Claudia Orange, Dr Aroha Harris and Carmen Parahi (Stuff’s Pou Tiaki Editor).
The Prime Minister has been invited to close the conference but cannot confirm until three months' prior.
