This section draws together research, digital resources, and examples to support schools as they consider the coherence principle.
Coherence starter survey
The coherence starter survey helps schools consider how they use the coherence principle as a foundation of curriculum decision making. There are three sections to the survey: connections, transitions, and pathways. The survey can be used in a range of ways:
- by the entire school community, including students, parents, families, whānau, and iwi to identify areas of strength and possible next steps
- with teachers to generate discussion and classroom actions
- by school leaders to inform strategic planning.
The survey is available as a Word document download. By marking the tick boxes, schools will be able to identify where they sit in relation to each statement. Each section has links to examples and resources to help schools navigate to supporting content.
