INTERVIEW WITH A GURU: Sujata Rajagopal, An integrated investigation: Science at Taita College

Recently, the Education Gazette Tukutuku Kōrero published an article, An integrated investigation: Science at Taita College. In this Interview with a guru, Sujata Rajagopal (HOD science, Taita College) talks about how an integrated scientific inquiry into hangi and umu (cooking food) has naturally combined science, music, maths, technology, enabling year 10 students to achieve credits for NCEA level 1. 

This study also enables the student's cultural practices and heritage to be honoured and celebrated (with the wider community) in an authentic context. 

How are your secondary departments planning for NCEA tasks, with cross-curricula focus?
