Aboriginal Students K-6 - EDMT5680

Year - 2020

This unit of study explores diverse histories, cultures and linguistic identities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, their families and communities. It examines social, political and economic challenges faced by communities, and active steps that they and their non-Indigenous supporters are taking to address them. The unit emphasises the importance of consultation with Aboriginal communities in NSW contexts, and assists students to identify key stakeholders, in order to develop productive educational partnerships. Students will develop their skills for designing culturally responsive curriculum to enhance educational outcomes for Indigenous students K-6.
