Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education : An introduction for the teaching profession responds to the Australian Government's commitment to 'Close the Gap' on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander disadvantage. The book fully prepares students for the classroom and community environments they will encounter when teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in urban, rural and remote schools at early childhood, primary and secondary levels. It assists teacher education students to understand the deeper social, cultural and historical context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education. This is a unique textbook written by a team of highly regarded Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics in an engaging and accessible style. Each chapter opens with an engaging anecdote from the author, connecting learning to real-world issues. This is also the first textbook to cover Torres Strait Islander education. It is an essential resource for teacher education students.
