The Hikairo Schema for Secondary: Culturally responsive teaching and learning

This adaptable guide invites kaiako to rethink approaches to engaging ākonga, re-envisage the teacher/learner dynamic, revise old habits, and reconfigure learning environments to acknowledge and embrace cultural differences. Kaiako can use The Hikairo Schema for Secondary several times over, drawing on their previous experiences to inform and to develop new and innovative ways of facilitating culturally sensitive and inclusive learning settings within the progressively specialised learning environments of the secondary school.
This self-paced guide allows kaiako, whānau, and ākonga to collaboratively co-construct goals and outcomes that are relevant to their learning contexts. Kaiako can adapt The Hikairo Schema for Secondary to fit not only their own needs, but their own pace and level of comfort. It is a companion to The Hikairo Schema for Primary and The Hikairo Schema: Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning in Early Childhood Education Settings.
