Recommendations on the History Curriculum for NZ schools

 Registration is closed for this event

In conjunction with The Policy Observatory, AUT

Prof. Michael Belgrave co-chaired a Royal Society of New Zealand panel of historians that has reviewed drafts of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Histories in the New Zealand Curriculum. The new curriculum will be compulsory for years 1-10 students from 2020. The document was released in January and is now out for public consultation. The session allows for a discussion of the draft and its impact on our understanding of New Zealand’s past.

Michael Belgrave is a historian and foundation member of Massey's Albany campus. He was research manager of the Waitangi Tribunal and has continued to work on Treaty of Waitangi research and settlements.

His most recent book, Dancing with the King, an exploration of diplomacy and peace-making in the decades between the Waikato War and the opening of the King Country, won the Ernest Scott Prize for the best Australasian history published in 2017.
