The Āta framework (Thoughtful deliberation before action)
Āta is a traditional Māori cultural practice meaning ‘to proceed slowly and with thoughtful deliberation’ (Taina Pohatu, 2004). As a skill for inter-personal relationships, āta signals the person to proceed with some care and consideration.

- discuss Āta as a Māori cultural practice
- apply Bloom’s questioning techniques to enhance the Āta Framework in learning and teaching, and as appropriate in the workplace.
