We anticipate that the TREATY 2 U exhibition will be of high interest to NCEA History students.
This exhibition provides a learning experience that helps build a variety of skills relevant to NCEA History. The story of the Treaty provides a context in which students can understand the cause and consequence of past events. The exhibition also describes, very effectively, the different perspectives people have of the same past event.
Primary and secondary sources are presented throughout the exhibition, in a variety of forms. This allows students to investigate and interpret historical information in a number of different ways.
The TREATY 2 U exhibition is relevant to a number of themes and topics in Year 11. It is of particular relevance to topics within:
Social Welfare: New Zealand 1891–1980
Race Relations: New Zealand, Māori and Pākehā 1912–1980
International Relations: Māori in a post-colonial world 1950–1998
Social Change: The place of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in New Zealand society 1975–1998
Depending on the focus of the education programme, the TREATY 2 U exhibition can contribute towards knowledge and understanding in:
AS 1.1 – Carry out an historical investigation
AS 1.3 – Interpret historical sources
AS 1.4 – Describe the perspectives and related actions of people in an historical setting
AS 1.5 – Describe an historical development, in an essay
AS 1.6 – Describe experiences that have been significant to the identity of New Zealanders
The TREATY 2 U exhibition provides real opportunity to link with the Vision, Principles, and Key Competencies of the New Zealand Curriculum.
