Indigenous Education in Australia: Learning and Teaching for Deadly Futures

Marnee Shay, Rhonda Oliver

Indigenous Education in Australia: Learning and Teaching for Deadly Futures provides pre-service and in-service teachers with the knowledge and skills they need to support the *deadly* futures of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, in all classrooms across the country.

Based on the latest research and practice, this book provides an in-depth understanding of the colonised context within which education in Australia is located, with an emphasis on effective strategies for the classroom. Throughout the text, the authors share their personal and professional experiences providing rich examples for readers to learn from. Learning is further support by tools and frameworks for effective practice, reflective questions and podcast episodes, which go into further detail on key topics and authors’ stories.

Taking a strengths-based approach, this is an essential, practical resource that will support new and experienced teachers to create contexts for success and drive positive educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Judge’s Comment

Indigenous Education in Australia: Learning and Teaching for Deadly Futures is a brave and relevant publication for pre- and in-service teachers. By combining research and experience, the content reflects on the historical and current contexts of Indigenous education to promote quality experiences and the authentic inclusion of Indigenous content and perspectives. The first half of the text focuses on building the relevant knowledge and skills, while the second half of the text provides opportunities for pre- and in-service teachers to apply their skills to their own classrooms. The resource is further supported by an engaging and thought-provoking podcast.
