Aboriginal teaching activities and teaching resources

1 Apr

I have been thinking a lot lately about how we as teachers need to deliver authentic and quality lessons around truly understanding Indigenous ways of living that has real meaning and not just an add on or tacked on lesson with no substance! Easy to preach hard to do!

When I looked  over my blog stats I found there was an overwhelming amount of interest in how we do this! People are asking the questions I am asking all over the world!

I found this site today and started looking at the resources in depth.They look good!
