Aotearoa New Zealand’s Histories Professional Learning: An Inspirational Workshop for Teachers

As educators, we have the remarkable opportunity to shape the minds of future generations and instill in them a deep appreciation for our nation's diverse history. If you're a teacher seeking to enrich your students' understanding of Aotearoa's past, we have a truly transformative experience awaiting you: The Aotearoa New Zealand's Histories Workshop at Waitangi Treaty Grounds leads you on an inspiring journey. It will provide an overview of the curriculum content from years 1 to 10 before further exploring learning activities related to Tino Rangatiratanga I Government and Organisation. Finally, it also looks at ways to grow resources and networks and provide practical examples to assist teachers with ANZH learning and teaching.

Discover Untold Narratives:

Embark on an immersive exploration that transcends the pages of textbooks and brings history to life. The Aotearoa New Zealand's Histories Workshop includes a guided tour and explores the two Waitangi museums, unveiling the untold narratives of our land and empowering us to understand the complexities and diverse perspectives that have shaped Aotearoa. Witness the struggles, achievements, and pivotal moments in our history, honouring the experiences of both Māori and Pākehā.

Empower Critical Thinking:

Beyond providing historical facts, this workshop helps you to encourage critical thinking and to inspire students to question, analyse and form their own opinions. By exploring different perspectives and confronting challenging topics, students develop a nuanced understanding of our past, fostering empathy, cultural appreciation, and respect for diversity. It's an invaluable opportunity to equip your students with the skills needed to navigate an increasingly complex world.

Personalised Learning Experiences:

We often get asked by teachers: “Where do I start?”, “How doI teach challenging histories?”.

At Waitangi Treaty Grounds, we understand the unique needs of teachers. The ANZH workshop offers tailored learning experiences that can be customised to align with your local curriculum. Whether you're teaching about Te Tiriti o Waitangi, New Zealand's involvement in World Wars, or the quest for women's suffrage, approaches from this workshop can be seamlessly integrated into your lesson plans, enriching your teaching practice and enhancing student outcomes.


As teachers, we have the power to shape the future by immersing our students in the rich tapestry of Aotearoa's history. The Aotearoa New Zealand's Histories Workshop at Waitangi Treaty Grounds will help you ignite a lifelong passion for learning in your students. By embracing our past, we empower our students to create a more inclusive, empathetic, and culturally aware future.
