We anticipate that the TREATY 2 U exhibition will be of high interest to NCEA Level 2 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 12. It is of particular relevance to topics within:
Government and Political Change
From Colony to Nation: New Zealand Government 1840–1947
Imperialism, Indigenous Peoples and the Emergence of New Nations
Māori Leadership of the 19th century
Tino Rangatiratanga/Sovereignty: New Zealand and the Māori nation 1984–1999
Depending on the focus of the education programme, the TREATY 2 U exhibition can contribute towards understanding and knowledge in:
AS 2.1 – Plan and carry out an historical inquiry
AS 2.3 – Examine evidence in historical sources
AS 2.4 – Examine perspectives and responses of, and demonstrate empathy for, people in an historical setting
AS 2.5 – Examine how a force or movement in an historical setting influenced people’s lives, in an essay
AS 2.6 – Examine individual or group identity in an historical setting, in an essay
The TREATY 2 U exhibition provides real opportunity to link with the Vision, Principles, and Key Competencies of the New Zealand Curriculum.
