Te Reo Māori in English-medium schools
8.4 Communicate the same information in different ways for different contexts.
Students can ask and answer job-related questions.
At the end of this lesson, students can:
Pānui - Reading: Understand much of what is written by other users of te reo Māori about a range of topics.
Tuhituhi - Writing: Use te reo Māori to entertain and persuade as well as inform.
Tell the students they are going to role play a staff recruitment scenario at Māori Television. A student is applying for a position as presenter and has been sent Resource sheet 8D: He reta, requesting further information.
Ask the students to pair up, one from each group. Get the students with Resource sheet 8E: Āku pātai to ask questions of their partner who is in the role of Māori Television staff.
When the dialogue is complete, ask the students to compose an email informing potential applicants of the recruitment process.
