Project Details

The Ranga Framework, developed by Professor Wiremu Doherty, provides a comprehensive approach to engaging Māori learners. The key idea behind the Ranga Framework is that local context is extremely important in literacy and language learning. It is necessary to understand the world view that sits behind the language. Adding in the richness of local tribal knowledge can be crucial for engaging learners.

Key Points to Note:

  • The Ranga Framework draws on the relationship between mātauranga-a-iwi (Māori identity), mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and kaupapa Māori theory to provide a comprehensive approach to engaging Māori.
  • These resources aim to support the engagement of Māori learners in literacy and language learning.
  • To get started watch the video: The Ranga framework/He Raranga Kaupapa.
