Delivery approach

The main goal set about by TupuOra is to inspire and invigorate teachers – whakahihiri to want to speak and teach te reo Māori by creating an atmosphere that is relaxed, built on trust and most importantly fun, enabling Kaiako to practice and utilise their reo abilities in a safe space where they can develop and grow their skills.

Additionally, the programme is unique in the way it has been contextualised specifically to teachers, and the application of te reo Māori within the classroom.  Accordingly, part of the learning within Te Rekamauroa requires Kaiako to prepare lesson plans that incorporate te reo Māori within their practice.  Observations are also offered as part of Te Rekaumauroa, by the Pūkenga, and upon request by Kaiako wishing to engage follow-up support within their specific kura and/or classroom.
