The Ministry of Education is looking to procure exciting, inspiring, innovative materials to support teaching and learning in the updated Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum content in The New Zealand Curriculum. The materials should enable critical inquiry and encourage learners to explore historical contexts and think critically about what we know about the past, how we know it and how it shapes our present and future.
We want to see materials that reflect the understanding that Māori history is the foundational history of Aotearoa New Zealand, that are inclusive, and that support belonging and well-being.
We want to see materials that generate interest and intrigue within classrooms. We want materials that teachers can pick up and use, and that also provide them with examples of quality teaching and learning materials for the Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum content.
The materials must firmly locate histories within social sciences in The New Zealand Curriculum and focus on the national contexts described in the draft curriculum content.
We don’t want materials that purport to show the one correct version of a history; rather materials should lead students to think about what we know, how we know it and why it’s important.
