This page explains the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the middle years curriculum and includes a range of support materials.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the curriculum

In the middle phase of schooling, students develop an understanding of the perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians and how these are influenced by personal experiences, cultural backgrounds and knowledge. This understanding helps students gain a better appreciation of Australian history and contemporary issues.

Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in Home Economics

These resources support teachers to develop skills and confidence in planning and teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in lower secondary Home Economics, particularly in a food/nutrition context.

The resources include a video and planning framework to support teachers to:

  • consider and implement processes and protocols relating to their local context
  • plan and reflect on ways to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching and learning.

Teacher support materials

The QCAA is developing a wide range of support materials for teachers working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students subject matter.
