Teaching Aboriginal Studies 1 - EDSE3080

Year - 2018

This unit of study prepares pre-service teachers for teaching Stages 4 and 5 Aboriginal Studies in NSW secondary schools. Through learning on country, pre-service teachers explore how local Aboriginal community knowledge reflects the diversity, vibrancy and resilience of Aboriginal peoples and cultures in today's society. Consequently, they will develop culturally responsive relationships-based pedagogical practices, programs and assessment strategies. 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.
