Level 1 Māori Performing Arts
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Kingi
What will I learn and how will I learn?
Level 1 Māori Performing Arts investigates and studies the foundation of Kapa Haka performance, with a major focus on the elementary components (wiri, takahia etc), disciplines (haka, poi etc) and the importance of costuming for the purpose of performance. This course also integrates Kapa Haka as a form of cultural dance and utilises dance assessments to reflect this kaupapa. Students will be required to perform two full Kapa Haka brackets in order to receive assessment marks for the practical components of Achievement Standard 90002 and Unit Standard 22752. All practical assessment material will be the responsibility of the kaiako.
Conditions of Assessment
NCEA internal assessments allow a flexible approach to the collection of achievement evidence. Therefore, assessment conditions will vary from theoretical assessments, supervised by the teacher, to practical performance assessments. All assessments will be monitored by the subject teacher to ensure authenticity of student work. Specific assessment conditions will be provided for individual achievement standards.
Submitting Internal Assessment
All paperwork for assessment must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Students will have three practical classes and one theory class every week. Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade and students will not be eligible for a reassessment opportunity. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor’s certificate. (Read over Student Handbook for full assessment details).
Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in student work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
Recommended Prior Learning
Students should have achieved in Year 10 Māori Performing Arts, and have experience within Te Puāwaitanga (Kaitaia College Kapa Haka Team), or approval of the Teacher in Charge and/or Head of Learning Area.
