From November, 2014, First World War inquiry guides (English medium) and resource packs (Māori medium) for teachers of years 1-13 will be available on Te Kete Ipurangi (TKI).
There is huge interest across generations in the First World War and the Centenary commemorations during 2014-2019 are a great opportunity to engage learners and explore how the events and experiences of the First World War are relevant to today and the future.
The large amount of information on the First World War available will be brought together in the inquiry guides and resource packs so that teachers will be able to quickly and easily develop learning programmes. The Ministry is doing this with the support of the National Library of New Zealand Services to Schools, WW100 Programme Office, Cognition Education, and Core Education.
The first of the inquiry guides and resource packs will be available by November 2014, with more progressively released through to September 2015. We will let you know when they are available via TKI, the Ministry Bulletin for School Leaders, Education Gazette, and the National Library Services to Schools website, newsletter and the Schoollib listserv.
In the meantime, to kick start your inquiry, check out the resources on WW100, NZ History online, and National Library Services to Schools websites:
