Key competencies in the bilingual classroom at College Street Normal School

Angela Rihia-Tamaki discusses integrating key competencies in the bilingual unit.

I look at whakatauki (proverbs) to talk about the key competencies. One example could be the kumara doesn’t speak of its own sweetness, we talk about being humble and then relate that to what it might mean for today. Then we relate those proverbs to the students’ understanding of the key competencies.
