“Recognising and spreading sophisticated pedagogical practice across our community so that students learn in better and more powerful ways...”
The Manaiakalani Community of Learning is working together on this task using the expertise existing in of our community of learning.
In 2017 for my inquiry I have selected the following CoL achievement challenge
#4. Increase the achievement of Years 1-10 learners, with a focus on Years 7-10, in reading, writing and maths, as measured against National Standards and agreed targets.
Specific to my context in a class that is made up of Māori students. I hypothesise that greater cultural visibility and the use of SOLO thinking tools will help me to do this.The teaching as inquiry framework I will be using in 2017 has been specifically co-constructed for Manaiakalani schools using our familiar Learn Create Share structure.
The elements in this framework share close similarities with other models New Zealand teachers use.
I will be labelling my posts as I update my inquiry throughout the year to make the content easy to access.
