Researchers Dr Kathy Mills;
Brief description The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Education Action Plan 2010-2014 aims to close the gap in education outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. Mainstream educational practices are based on beliefs about knowing and being, which marginalise the literacy learning of Indigenous Australian students. This project will develop a model for multimodal literacy learning based on Indigenous community practices with primary students in Years four and five. The researcher will work with Indigenous elders and the principal and teachers at an independent Indigenous school, and further develop this approach within the broader context of Aboriginal schools.
