The Common Practice Model

Developing the Common Practice Model (the Model) is a key part of the Literacy & Communication and Maths Strategy. The Model will outline principles and evidence-informed pedagogical approaches to underpin teaching and learning for literacy & communication and maths within Te Whāriki and The New Zealand Curriculum

Julia and Pania have been part of the Contributor group for the numeracy aspect of the Model.


Pania Te Maro

Ko Hikurangi te maunga, ko Waiapū te awa, ko Ngāti Porou te iwi, ko Pōkai te wharenui, ko Te whānau ā Pōkai te hapū, ko Te Kapa a Hinekōpeka te tūrangawaewae, ko Pania Te Maro ahau.

I am mum of 5 and nana of 12 mokopuna. Educated mainly on the Kapiti Coast, I became a teacher in 1992, teaching in Wellington, Porirua and Otaki. I have taught in Kōhanga reo, primary and secondary school rūmaki units and was a teaching Tumuaki (principal) of a Kura ā-Iwi teaching in kura teina and wharekura. I moved into Initial Teacher Education in Wellington in 2004 where maths and stats education (practice and research) became my speciality. I went from there to Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi where, as well as my ITE work, I spent time as associate director Māori in the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults. I see all learning areas and ages benefitting from ensuring parity for mātauranga Māori with mātauranga maths and stats. My research focusses on maths and stats education in the compulsory sector in both kaupapa Māori and kaupapa English schools. My PhD – (2019) Mai i ngā rā o Mua (From the days before that are in front of us). Dialectical and knowledge-power relations in the interactions of kura and maths education. [Unpublished doctoral thesis, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi] has supported me in deeply investigating the positioning of maths and stats in education and has led to me being able to share ideas about where mātauranga Māori can be acknowledged and positioned in maths and stats teaching and learning, and where, by doing so, mātauranga maths and stats beyond the uses made of them by the education system is able to be better highlighted. I am aware that each context is better managed by those who are working within the context, therefore I do not have answers. Only ideas and experiences to share.

I am currently an Associate Professor, with responsibilities as Kaihautū Māori and Kaiārahi Tiriti for the Institute of Education and Associate Dean Māori for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Massey University. My hope is to engage in positive, constructively challenging, hope-filled ways to sustain mātauranga Māori in/by/through education, enabling greater inclusion in all that is Aotearoa.
