The Assignment Guidelines for the Cultural Inquiry Unit

New Zealand Peoples Mini Inquiry Student Instructions Learning Intention: Evaluate the positive and negative consequences of cultural interaction for a migrant group and identify how the migrant group has contributed to the development of New Zealand’s identity as a multicultural society.
Students in my group:

Task: Your task over the next 3 lessons is to answer 4 focus questions about your migrant group’s experience of cultural interaction in New Zealand. You will have 3 periods of class time on the mini inquiry, including some sessions in the library and/or computer labs. Your group will present your research findings to the rest of the class. You can present your research in a poster format, a PowerPoint, or a role play. Your presentation should be 6-8 minutes long. During your presentation, the rest of the class will have a retrieval chart to record information about the focus questions.

Focus questions:
1. When and why did this migrant group come to New Zealand?
2. What have been the positive consequences of cultural interaction for this migrant group? (eg. better education opportunities, improved quality of life, access to healthcare etc.)
3. What have been the negative consequences of cultural interaction for this migrant group? (eg. speaking English as a second language, finding work, lack of extended family, discrimination etc.)
4. How has this migrant group contributed to the development of New Zealand’s identity as a multicultural society? (eg. food, music, performing arts etc.)
