Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the Classroom Volume 2
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the Classroom 2 suggests effective and meaningful ways to integrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures into the daily life of any teaching and learning environment.
The book guides you through ways to encourage students to genuinely respond to First Nations artists’ works, instead of merely copying a style or technique used by artists. With authentic links to the Australian Curriculum, including visual arts, history, music, performance, design and science, you will discover how works of art and artists can be the ideal platform or starting point to initiate conversations and learn about the world, its history, its people and protecting its future.
Central to this process is the easy-to-follow flowchart ‘A guide to using works of art as a starting point’, presented alongside new and varied examples of best teaching practice. For additional focus, the book also includes suggested activities for students on important days or weeks of the year, such as Invasion Day, World Environment Day, Reconciliation Week, Anzac Day, Science Week, Book Week and International Women’s Day.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the Classroom Volume 2 has been developed by AGSA Education with the support of Tarnanthi through BHP. AGSA Education is supported by the Department for Education through the Government of South Australia.
