Domain 2 - Culturally Responsive Practice

The resources pinned in this domain support my understanding of Maori and Pasifika and how to provide a culturally responsive and effective service for Maori and Pasifika students. The competencies for the domain focus on the concept and role of culture, cultural values, beliefs, and practices. The resources pinned are key readings/references that were valuable to me when achieving my goals. Some of the resources I will refer back to and use with colleagues/teachers.
