PROFESSIONAL LEARNING FOR TEACHERS. ONE WORLD CENTRE WORKSHOP – 15 JUNE 2017
ENGAGING WITH THE ABORIGINAL CONTEXT IN 2017
Are you involved in teaching and learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories in the HASS curriculum? (e.g. ACHASSK083, ACHASSK086, ACHASSK107, ACHASSK135, ACDSEH104, ACDSEH106)
Have you deeply and meaningfully embedded the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures Cross Curriculum Priority across learning areas?
Do you have Aboriginal students in your class?
Have you used the Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework (Department of Education) to improve cultural responsiveness and ensure Aboriginal students are confident and successful learners?
Tim Muirhead (non-Aboriginal) and Danny Ford (Nyoongar) will provide a series of powerful frameworks that will help you make sense of the context in which we’re all operating in 2017.The workshop will give you an insight, for example into:
The diversity, and diverse, circumstances, of your Aboriginal students and their families;
The root causes of some of the deep challenges that many of those students face today;
The strength and opportunities, within Aboriginal worlds, that students can draw on;
The ‘journey to recovery’ that we can all contribute to, once we understand the context.
Keys to building cross-cultural trust, and relationship, within our school community.
Tim and Danny are also open to exploring, openly and respectfully, any questions or dilemmas that you bring to the workshop.
