Aboriginal Studies Curriculum 2 (EDMT5012)


This unit of study prepares graduates for teaching Stage 6 Aboriginal Studies in NSW secondary schools. Through the development of units of work, assessment tasks, resources and field studies, students 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 graduates in becoming multi-skilled, pro-active critical thinkers, intercultural communicators and educators in the field of Aboriginal Studies and in the wider education community.
