AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Teaching and Learning in Aboriginal Education helps pre-service teachers prepare themselves for the challenges and joys of teaching Aboriginal students in urban, remote and rural primary and secondary schools. This book balances the practical, the personal and the theoretical to convey the richness of diversity that is found within Australian classrooms. Features throughout focus on building students' confidence and understanding of the different classrooms, cultural environments and communities they will be teaching in. These include: Personal narratives provide real experience of teaching Indigenous children and explore issues that future teachers may encounter. Learning from experience vignettes from teachers working with indigenous students allow the pre-service teacher to explore the community environments they will encounter when teaching indigenous children in urban, rural and remote primary and secondary schools.'

[Review Essay] Teaching and Learning in Aboriginal Education Lawrence Bamblett , 2012 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 2 2012; (p. 99-101)

'Representations of Aborigines matter. Clearly, media presentations about us matter because they are how many Australians get to know us. In the same way, every policy document, government report and academic text contributes to our collective and individual identities. Mainstream educators are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of representations as they create strategic partnerships with communities. Creating community–school partnerships are a particular focus of Aboriginal education courses at many universities. Many students will arrive at these courses with little personal knowledge of Aborigines. What the students are guided to learn about Aborigines in training courses will affect the ways that they initially engage Aboriginal students and communities. It follows that the conversations experienced teachers have with pre-service and early career teachers will have a significant impact on learning and teaching in Aboriginal education. These conversations matter in terms of teaching practice and curriculum content. There is then a significant responsibility that comes with writing a textbook about Aborigines for an audience of pre-service and early career teachers.'  (Introduction)
