What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content
This paper focuses on children's language and communication. It is closely aligned to the learning outcomes in the Communication/Mana Reo strand of the Aotearoa New Zealand early childhood curriculum: Te Whariki. The multi-modal means by which children communicate, how they develop and learn language as either monolingual or bi/multi lingual language learners and the role of the kaiako in these processes is explored.

How you will be assessed

Edit How you will be assessed Content

The 3 compulsory assessments are designed to evaluate student's demonstration of the key learning outcomes and their understanding of the main theoretical concepts presented throughout the course.

Assignment submission and collection procedure

All assignments are submitted online through Moodle by the due dates. If you cannot meet the deadline for a significant reason you need to follow the procedures outlined below in requesting extensions. Submitted work will be marked and returned to you via Moodle.

In recognition of the status of the Māori language as a tāonga protected under the Treaty of Waitangi, and within the spirit of the Māori Language Act 1987, the University of Waikato endorses the right of its students to use the Māori language in written work for assessment within the University. If you intend to present all or part of an internally assessed work in Māori you are requested to give at least 14 days’ notice of this intention of doing so in writing to your lecturer. This helps ensure that we have the time and opportunity to make proper arrangements for marking including, when necessary, translation and external assessment. If less than 14 days' notice is given, the material presented in Māori will still be accepted. The processing of it may, however, be delayed and the opportunity to have the script marked in the original language may be reduced.

Note to staff – if a student is intending to submit in Te Reo Māori please complete this form (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uXjjxUwWO9XtYeC322Wodb8Tg9y­lzEp4tMAIP_Xv4Q/edit) that both explains the procedure and formalises a process for payment of translation
