This report presents the findings of a research project conducted by NZCER in collaboration with Literacy Aotearoa. The research asked the question: “What are the impacts on whanau when parents/caregivers undertake programmes to develop their literacy and numeracy in English?"
An observational study of literacy, numeracy and language teachers. Researchers observed a group of literacy, numeracy and language tutors teaching adults to gain an insight into some current teaching practices in New Zealand.
This project investigated how successful learning is defined by learners in the Adult Community Education sector and how that could inform the programme interventions and activities offered in this learning context.
This publication will interest organisations working with Māori youth who have high numeracy and literacy needs.
It describes two student project-based learning experiences - with accompanying teaching and learning resources. The report also features a useful guide for creating engaging student work with integrated assessment schemes.
