Where to from here? What will you do in future to plan for and implement Aboriginal perspectives content into your Years 7-10 science teaching-learning program?

Working through the new syllabus, I think it's important to consider the context of the school and the local community and to integrate activities at a number of levels. Sometimes, it might be just metaphors and stories in lessons, sometimes, the lesson cluster model and sometimes, having a look at the skills, problem-solving activities where statistics or Aboriginal context could be used to solve a particular problem. I think the thinking outcomes are particularly suitable here.

Having worked on this project, I now feel that I can go back to the department and work with my colleagues in professionally developing them and giving them the confidence to implement various Aboriginal perspectives into their teaching practices and showing them what can be done and where.

Well I think now we've got a perfect opportunity to start including Aboriginal perspectives into all our units of work. We've got the new syllabus on the table. We're going to be reworking them anyway, so why not include some work on this project. I can see a really good opportunity to get going on this.
