LI: To make an informed opinion.
A provocation is an action or speech that triggers strong feelings about a topic. Over the last few weeks we have been learning about the experiences of the men of Te Hokowhitu – a – tu, the first Maori Battalion in WW1. These men had very different experiences to the men who sign up today. Our challenge throughout this unit has been to answer the question: Should the men of the native contingent have had the right to prove their mettle at the front? After completing the tasks and reading a wide variety of texts our group’s response to the provocation was our overall opinions on the activities that were set for us.
