What is Culture?
We will explore the idea of culture, and discuss what culture we identify with here in Aotearoa New Zealand. We will debate whether we need to know Maori culture to be considered an Aotearoaean New Zealander.
Then we explore culture through poems and short stories, which each inform and describe cultural aspects that appear different, similar to what we consider our own.
Tools we will use will be the iceberg theory of culture; Venn diagrams; 5 whys.
We will aim to use poems, recounts, music and film to put together our own cultural identities.
