• Separate response forms are required for each project listed below.
• Suppliers may submit proposals as a single entity or as a collaboration with another person or organisation.

Project 1 - Subjective Motivation
Anecdotal evidence gained from our networks indicate that there is a growing interest and inclusion of te reo Māori and tikanga Māori in business and organisations that are not kaupapa Māori based.

We want to understand:
a. What motivates these organisations to use and promote te reo Māori.
b. The value proposition that te reo Māori has with these organisations.
c. How the organisation implemented the integration of te reo Māori in their business.
d. The approaches to the learning and teaching of linguistic components of language revitalisation that are appropriate to the acquisition of te reo Māori.

We are interested in research proposals that can work with at least three of each of these categories:
a. Local Government organisations.
b. Schools, and
c. Private businesses.

Project 2 - Evaluation of Te Reo Māori in English medium compulsory education sector.
Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori are seeking to understand what the provision of te reo Māori in English medium education looks like. We want to know how much provision is occurring, what’s working, what are reasonable expectations of the type of provision. Some key evaluation questions we would like the evaluation to answer are:

a. How was the programme developed? What is its relationship to the Te Reo Māori curriculum
b. How is the programme being implemented? How well is the programme working?
c. How was the programme integrated into the school? What worked /what did not?
d. What innovative programmes have been done that can be shared with others?
e. How did the programme affect children’s ability to learn and use te reo Māori? Children’s attitudes towards te reo Māori?
f. Did the programme produce or contribute to the intended outcomes? For whom, in what ways and in what circumstances? What unintended outcomes (positive and negative) were
