Reflective questions again

Here are more reflective questions (this time from Learning Media’s The Quality Journey):

  • “Are we supporting our Maori children well? How can we do better?
  • Are we communicating and working in partnership with Maori in the community (parents/whanau, kaumatua, kuia)?
  • Do we know the views of Maori on how our service is working?
  • What can we learn from Maori values and beliefs in the context of our service?
  • Do we understand the protocols of the local hapu/iwi?
  • How can we effectively incorporate te reo and tikanga Maori into our daily experiences?
  • Are we promoting non-discriminatory behaviour and cultural sensitivity in general?” (p.6)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
