It also provides more emphasis on NZ/Maori/Pasifika content and is able to ensure solid conceptual foundation through discussions and interesting contemporary examples. Throughout the book, students will find What do YOU think? activities that encourages students to think about and apply concepts they are learning to their own lives, allowing them to engage with core concepts on a deeper and personal level.
