|This unit of study introduces Stages 4, 5 and 6 Aboriginal Studies, which are Board of Studies approved electives in the secondary curriculum. These courses are based on standard Board of Studies designs and, as such, provide students with an excellent first hand experience of the syllabus continuum in the secondary school. Outcomes-based teaching and learning is a feature and students learn to translate this approach into practical teaching, planning and implementation. Students also consider an holistic approach to Aboriginal Studies where the needs of the students, school and community directly influence the nature of program development and content. Consultation, protocols, ethical research practices and a local community focus feature as they do in both syllabuses. Cross curriculum content and skills with a focus on literacy and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) is part of the ongoing development of students becoming multi-skilled, adaptable and pro-active educators in the field of Aboriginal Studies.|
Available to students who have completed the Diploma in Education (Aboriginal) or equivalent.
