New Zealand Basics 4: My World, My Planet

By | Copyright Year:2003 | ISBN-13: 9780170950404

Published:15/06/2003
One of the principles/Nga Matapono directing the New Zealand Curriculum Framework is that “The New Zealand Curriculum relates learning to the wider world.” For such ‘relating’ to take place, students must have a basic knowledge of how that ‘wider world’ operates.

This series aims to deliver that knowledge in a way that:
• is 100% user-friendly
• is accessible to all learner levels
• allows opportunity for further in-depth study of a particular topic
• is contained in a workbook that can be kept by students as a personal record
• will equip students with the backdrop of knowledge that links to specific curricula
• encourages students to use the eight essential skills specified by the New Zealand Curriculum for all students across the whole curriculum throughout their years of schooling
• provides students with a useful background for understanding international current affairs.
