Te reo Māori survey for Māori language teachers: An invitation

Kia ora e hoa mā,

If you have taught or are teaching the Māori language in an institution (e.g. primary to tertiary, wānanga, community-based etc), then I would like to invite you to take a ‘te reo Maori survey for Maori language teachers‘ and as a thank you receive and download the free language description booklet called ‘Te reo Māori: Three different ways of describing aspects of te reo Māori’ which is part of the actual survey.

This is part of a greater research project which explores how the Māori language is described in textbooks and how teachers of Māori respond to different approaches to describing the language and to determine if these descriptions are useful for the teaching and learning of te reo Māori.

There is also an opportunity to participate in a follow-up interview (more details at the end of the survey). You can stop the survey at any time and return back to it later by saving the address as a short cut on to your desktop.

Thank you for your time, Michael. Click on link >> Te reo Maori survey for Maori language teachers

Help to increase the status and use of our great and resilient language. Te reo Māori.

    I’ve shared this request with my group Sociolinguists on Facebook, 2500 members and growing, with quite a few Maori specialists (https://www.facebook.com/groups/sociolinguists/). Good luck and keep us posted even as non-maori specialist. your blog is a mine for researchers!
