A new book by leading educators and researchers in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and Canada boldly encourages culturally responsive educational practices.
Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons scrutinises ethnic and cultural considerations in the hope of helping beginning and experienced teachers, special education advisors, psychologists, university lecturers, education professionals (from early childhood through to tertiary), and families.
Co-editor and University of Canterbury (UC) Professor of Māori Research Angus Macfarlane (affiliates to Te Arawa) says the book is exceptional in that it spans the entire education sector – from the early pre-school years through to the tertiary space – and also draws on the sociocultural realities of Indigenous learners from three distinctive global locations.
