A new model for teaching Indigenous students

Niho Taniwha: Improving Teaching and Learning for Ākonga Māori by Dr Melanie Riwai-Couch is a guide for teachers and school leaders that focuses on how to improve teaching and learning for Māori students and those who create learning environments.

It introduces and uses the Niho Taniwha model for teaching and learning with practical steps to achieve better learning environments.  Topics covered include addressing racism in school settings, and a perspective on neurodiversity.  Each chapter includes theory and best practise, self-assessment tools and reflective questions. Written from a New Zealand context where Māori are the Indigenous people, this book will be useful for educators wanting to consider education models for Indigenous people in mainstream environments.
