Video 1: An accelerated response informed by evidence

  • Key Content

    When teachers focus on a discrepancy between reading and writing levels as a deficiency, this can prevent them from recognising learner potential. In this clip members of the SCLT reflect on the support they have put in place for a group of junior students to improve the quality of their writing. These teachers draw from a range of evidence and share how they have rationalised this potential focused approach:

    • responding to evidence
    • contexts for learning
    • potential focused.
  • Things to Think About

    Conversation framework for those new to Kia Eke Panuku:

    1. Discuss a range of possible ways schools could respond when the evidence indicates that students are performing below national expectations. How does your school currently respond?
    2. What different types of evidence inform changes in structure and practice at your school?
    3. What do you notice about the context for learning that these teachers and students are engaged in?

    Conversation Framework for Kia Eke Panuku schools:

    1. Discuss the connections to culturally responsive and relational pedagogy related to the contexts for learning in this clip.
    2. These teachers recognised that students’ poor perception of themselves as writers needed to be challenged and shifted. In your context how do you support Māori students to develop self-efficacy and realise their potential?
    3. Thinking about the vision of Ka Hikitia (Māori students enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori), discuss the implications for your practice.

    Conversation Framework for Kia Eke Panuku Strategic Change Leadership teams:

    1. This clip presents a deliberate structural change in response to evidence. How has your SCLT responded to evidence with a deliberate intervention to accelerate learning for Māori students?
    2. Discuss the connections between the key ideas in this clip and the Kia Eke Panuku dimensions/levers for change.
    3. Consider the opportunities this presents for you to activate the kaupapa across the school and in your wider community.
