            Ira Takaro: Rethinking Health, Sport & Education in Aotearoa / NZ (Paperback)

            In this landmark educational publication researcher Harko Brown explains the tenets of Ira Takaro Theory. Brown contends that since the mid-1800's there has been a lack of attention to ira takaro (or the schema) of Tamariki Maori in our health, sports and educational institutes.... He says this has often negatively impacted Tamariki Maori via scornful social discourses, for example, by educators critical of Maori children's in-school behaviours, and in their overall academic and health statistics. He describes the natural expressions of ira takaro in Polynesian children as pronounced and packed with powerful potential which at present is much maligned and misunderstood in general by hauora providers, particularly by those in the fields of mental health and child psychology, by sports and recreational providers and in teaching professions.

In this astonishing powerful portrait of a single school year, Brendan James Murray shows the ups and downs of school for teachers and students: the dedication of colleagues, the bureaucracy of the curriculum, the passion and fire he tries to light in his students, and their responses, hilarious, heartbreaking and true.

            This is the only Montessori book to recognise that most parents do not have the time and resources to overhaul their lives to fully embrace a parenting philosophy, but instead need practical, immediate guidance that is effective in the moment. This book makes Montessori accessibl...e to every parent and every family. It outlines the key principles that underpin the approach succinctly and makes applying them immediate and practical for the average time-poor working parent. It provides quick, simple and accessible ways to ensure that your child's environment is a stimulating one. It also explores the family values that Montessori instils, and how the way in which you parent and your approach to communication and relationships can encapsulate these. You can embrace living, loving and learning at home using the Montessori method - whether your child is at Montessori school or regular school or you are homeschooling - and create magical Montessori moments every day.
