Resources and ideas for supporting Māori learners to be successful as Māori, shared on list by Jason Ruakere

·      What are Māori perspectives on literacy?

·      What does literacy look like for Māori learners outside the classroom?

·      How can Māori literacy perspectives be implemented in the classroom?

Jason did some of his own research and found the following documents and video clips related to Māori literacy.
