This unit of study prepares pre-service teachers for teaching Stage 6 Aboriginal Studies in NSW secondary schools. Through the development of teaching resources, assessment tasks and case studies, pre-service teachers will develop teaching and learning strategies that analyse current socio-political issues in contemporary Australia with a focus on social justice and human rights issues for Indigenous communities at local, national and international levels. This will support them in becoming pro-active critical thinkers, intercultural communicators and educators in the field of Aboriginal Studies and in the wider education community.
