AbstractHistoryArchive Description

BlackWords is essential for incorporating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives across the humanities and social science curriculum. While it is obvious that BlackWords is an excellent resource for English classrooms, it is also a valuable resource for history, social studies, politics, art, media, performing arts and film studies.
The material on BlackWords is most relevant to secondary and tertiary students. Not only does BlackWords contain material relevant to all three over-arching priorities for the National Curriculum, but the National Curriculum also states that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives be embedded in all subjects, irrespective of whether there are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in the classroom.
