Description

Teach your students practice-based strategies from local voices and perspectives.

Learning and Teaching in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education, fourth edition, is designed to equip pre-service teachers with strategies to help improve learning outcomes of students, and demonstrates strategies on how to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and voices in their teaching. The text ‘keeps things local’ and works closely with the local community to deliver a successful teaching and learning experience in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.

This new edition has been revised to address the increased focus on teaching reading and writing, new ways of embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge in the curriculum, and how to monitor and support the emotional health and wellbeing of students. It includes case studies, examples and a range of voices and personal stories from students, pre-service teachers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to convey the richness and diversity of Australian classrooms.
