The New Zealand Curriculum

A question to consider

  • How can you help your students to access The New Zealand Curriculum at age-appropriate levels as soon as possible?

English language learners should have the same learning outcomes as other learners in their peer group, but they will need explicit language teaching and extra scaffolding of learning.

In other words, you will need to consider how to provide appropriate cognitive challenges as well as teaching the English language skills necessary to access all of the Learning Areas in The New Zealand Curriculum.
