Pasifika students are likely to use an inviting library that helps them achieve their learning goals. Here we outline ways to develop library and information services for Pasifika students.
Supporting Māori and Pasifika learners
As a teacher, you are able to draw not only on the expertise of the school librarian, but find out more about the available range of resources to support reading and learning among your Māori and Pasifika students.
Your school library plays a key role in helping your Māori and all other students aware of their culture and heritage, and the diversity of other cultures. This is vital, as they develop their self-identity, sense of values, and the competencies that will enable them to realise their potential.
Your school library provides opportunities for Māori students to connect with a wide range of quality information resources. Here you'll find information and resources to help you develop a school-wide information literacy programme using an inquiry learning approach.
