Abstract

For Aboriginal students, becoming literate in the dominant society is complex and challenging. In their work and research the authors have found evidence of the ways in which the cultural practices of pedagogy are being played out in the day to day realities of Aboriginal students in their classrooms. The focus of the paper is specifically on the nature of the cultural practices of pedagogy in schools where the authors conducted their research. They examine how implicit beliefs and understandings embedded in these different cultural knowledges at 'school' and 'home' can impinge on the meanings being made by each of the participants
