This book provides a snapshot of my experience as an educator. The case study and unit plan should be used to complement professional learning including workshops and engagement in learning communities and cultural awareness and responsiveness training by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.
It is important to seek out continual professional learning in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and the resources in chapter three can be a starting point for online explorative learning. However teachers must engage in relevant seminars and workshops in their own location facilitated by people who have been given approval from the local Elder Council and the Indigenous Education area in the Department of Education.
This book is intended to begin a conversation with non-Indigenous educators about the role they play in ensuring that Indigenous Education is meaningfully embedded in the curriculum.
Please read the case study as being very specific to its context and so not meant to be duplicated. The addition of the unit of work is to provide an editable guideline of what your planning may look like. I urge you to alter the plans by engaging with your local communities. Most communities have an Aboriginal Education Consultative Group, and most directorates have an Indigenous Education section that can assist you in making the connection to develop the curriculum.
