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.
