Learning about my students' needs
What is important (and therefore worth spending time on), given where my students are at? This focusing inquiry establishes a baseline and a direction. The teacher uses all available information to determine what their students have already learned and what they need to learn next.
Planning needs to align with and be informed by school and department goals and targets (for example, the targets to achieve success for Māori as listed in Ka Hikitia). Also consider what priorities may have been set (for example, to focus on inquiry as a way of learning).
