In my learning in Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories, I can:

Identifying and exploring historical relationships

I can construct a narrative of cause and effect that shows relationships between events. By comparing examples over time, I can identify continuity or changes in the relationships. I can recognise that others might interpret these relationships differently.

Identifying sources and perspectives

I can use historical sources with differing perspectives and contrary views (including those that challenge my own interpretation), giving deliberate attention to mātauranga Māori sources. I can recognise that the sources available may not capture and fairly represent the diversity of people’s experiences.

Interpreting past experiences, decisions, and actions

I can make informed ethical judgements about people’s actions in the past, basing them on historical evidence and giving careful consideration to the complex predicaments people faced, what they knew and expected, the attitudes and values of the times, and my own attitudes and values.
