This unit of study is a compulsory unit within the combined degrees program. It prepares students to become effective teachers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and develops an understanding of the current social, political and economic challenges faced by Aboriginal peoples and communities. This provides students with a sound foundation upon which to address issues impacting on the educational outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. A shared history approach provides an inclusive and multi-perspective framework to explore the diversity of Indigenous cultures as well as equip students with culturally appropriate teaching and learning strategies to meet the educational needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The unit also provides an overview of Aboriginal educational policies and priorities which impact on all students in NSW schools and firmly emphasises the importance of ongoing consultation and engagement with Aboriginal communities and key stakeholders. Through studying this unit, students will continue to construct their teaching identity and acquire the knowledge and skills to become proactive creators of innovative and inclusive classrooms.
