23. Assessment for improving all students’ Pasifika languages

One area where systemic racism occurs is ironically through the Pacific Standards; however, these standards are potentially one of the richest assessments. Angela shares the potential of these standards to maintain, support and improve all students’ Pasifika languages in a Pasifika village environment from years 10 – 13. The presentation explores a problem of practice along with some solutions but stresses the need for ongoing work in a changing NCEA climate. 

After working as HOD of English as an Additional Language, Angela Bland has been working on a PhD  focused on the implementation of a junior Gagana Samoa class.
