Aotearoa New Zealand's histories: Supporting school leaders to understand and plan for Aotearoa New Zealand's histories in social sciences

Leading Local Curriculum Guide: Aotearoa New Zealand's histories.

This guide is the first of two leading local curriculum guides on Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories.  It has been created using the draft curriculum content for the New Zealand Curriculum.

The guide explores the foundational and key capabilities for engaging with the new curriculum content. It supports school leaders working with teachers to:

  • increase knowledge of national and local histories and grow critical inquiry skills
  • build productive partnerships with whānau, hapū, and iwi
  • review their social sciences teaching and learning programme for years 1–10 and start identifying ways to strengthen Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories.

The guide will be updated and added to after the Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum content is finalised.

You can download the guide from NZC Online

Coming soon ...

A second guide for Aotearoa New Zealand's histories, focusing on the implementation process, will be published in 2022.
