9. English teaching and Aboriginal education: Effective strategies and strategic resources
(MS; JS; SS)
The Australian Curriculum highlights the importance of developing culturally respectful teaching
and learning strategies and resources for our classrooms. As English teachers we require high-quality,
student-centred and engaging teaching and learning Indigenous education resources for English
teaching programs and classroom activities. This workshop session provides an authentic context
for developing culturally aware and respectful teaching and learning strategies in secondary English,
as well as a rich range of accessible and contemporary teaching resources to engage student
interest. Nurturing inquiring minds and engaging students’ own cultural resources are valuable keys
for classroom success. Ways to integrate Indigenous ways of knowing into classroom teaching and
learning for all students will be explored and practical strategies that are inclusive and respectful will
be shared. There will be opportunities for sharing resources and strategies in this workshop to build
our cultural awareness and cultural capabilities for effective classroom teaching.
