Te Reo Māori in English-medium schools
8.2 Develop an argument or point of view, with reasons.
At the end of this lesson, students can:
Tuhituhi - Writing: Write about a range of topics across a wide range of text types, selecting words and expressions that are appropriate for the purpose and intended audience.
Ask the students to list their modes and strengths in Māori. Then lead a class discussion about the students’ career ambitions.
Talk about the type of information that they would include in their Curriculum Vitae. Ask career advisors, tertiary recruitment staff, Work and Income New Zealand staff or whānau to assist, if necessary.
Have the students compile a Curriculum Vitae, using Resource sheet 8G: He tauira hei ārahi and Resource sheet 8H: He tauira hei whakakī as templates.
