Tauira – Māori methods of learning and teaching
Tauira - Māori methods of learning and teaching By Joan MetgeIn te reo Maori, tauira means both student and teacher, and this book by acclaimed educator and anthropologist Joan Metge shows that Maori educational practices had a particular form and philosophy. Maori focused on learning by doing, teaching in context, learning in a group, memorizing, and advancement when ready. Parents, grandparents, and community leaders imparted cultural knowledge as well as practical skills to the younger generation through daily life and storytelling, in whanau and community activities. In preserving this evidence and these voices from the past, this important book also offers much inspiration for the future. This book is written in English.

Mauri Ora Wisdom from the Māori world
Mauri Ora Wisdom from the Māori world - By Peter Alsop & Te Rau KupengaPearls of wisdom – whakataukī – have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Māori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they take you by surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links whakataukī to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues – wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief – stem from the field of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Māori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.
