Kua tuhia te pakimaero E Hari e Manu Te Awa hei whai atu i E Te Tau i whakaputaina i te tau 2008. Hei rauemi tēnei aratohu mā te pouako, mā ngā ākonga hoki. Ka noho tēnei aratohu hei tūāpapa e taea ai e te pouako te whakaurutau ki tāna e hiahia ai hei āwhina i ngā ākonga. Mā te whakamahi i tēnei rauemi ka ako ngā ākonga ki ētahi ahuatanga o te reo me ngā āheinga reo, ā, ka whai wāhi hoki ki te whakatinana i ērā āhuatanga mā ētahi o ngā tūmahi o roto nei.
E hāngai ana tēnei rauemi ki te Taumata 7 o Te Reo Māori i roto i Te Marautanga o Aotearoa me ngā kaiako e whakaako ana i ngā ākonga Tau 12 kei ngā kura me ngā whare rumaki reo Māori.
The novel E Hari has been written by Manu Te Awa as the sequel to E Te Tau. This supplementary resource has been produced to sit alongside the novel as a guide for teachers to use with their students. It is intended as a baseline resource that teachers can adapt to suit their own programmes and to support learner outcomes. Through using this resource students will learn about some aspects of language style and functions; and will have the opportunity to put their learning in to practise through the various activities included in the resource.
It is aligned to Level 7 of the Reo Māori learning area in Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and is intended for teachers teaching Tau 12 students in Level 1 and 2 Māori-medium immersion settings.
