Summary

“The project seeks to assist the WA Department of Education to develop more effective ways of teaching secondary students about Aboriginal history, culture and issues, in the context of the (changing) requirements of the Australian Curriculum. It also addresses related issues regarding the training of teachers at universities and via in-service professional development. The project demonstrates an approach which focuses on local and regional (rather than Australia-wide) information, with the relevant Aboriginal cultural organization playing a key role in curriculum development. The major long-term objective of this Rotary Project is to raise the general level of understanding of Western Australian people regarding Aboriginal history, culture and contemporary issues.”--Executive summary.
