References for ‘Literacy for Māori’

Literacy for Māori includes a diversity of knowledge taken from Mātauranga Māori and mainstream theoretical frameworks. Language holds deep meanings for people and therefore Te Reo Rangatira (the Māori language) and the English language are both valid when developing literacy with Māori audiences and adult learners. Educators can draw from a wide range of publications to inform their work when engaging learners with a specific focus of “working to improve the literacy skills of adult learners”.
