Teaching Aboriginal Studies 1 (EDSE3080)


This unit of study prepares graduates for teaching Stages 4 and 5 Aboriginal Studies in NSW secondary schools. Through participation in a local Aboriginal cultural immersion experience, the development of units of work, assessment tasks, resources and school visits, students will develop teaching and learning strategies to explore local Aboriginal community knowledge that reflects the diversity, vibrancy and resilience of Aboriginal peoples and cultures in todays society. 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.
