Curriculum Planning

1084 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in curriculum planning, development and evaluation processes should be a key and ongoing consideration across all year levels and learning areas. An audit of existing curriculum documents will help to identify the extent to which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures are included, and to identify opportunities for strengthening the representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions in the curriculum.

Teachers and educators are in a unique position to drive the reconciliation process in Australia and increase exposure to, and knowledge of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. This is reflected in national curriculum frameworks for both schools and early learning services, which for the first time formally require teachers and educators to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait histories, cultures and perspectives into teaching and learning programs.

While it may seem like a daunting task, a key starting point is to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures are incorporated in curriculum planning and development processes across all learning areas and year levels. This RAP Action suggests ways in which teachers and educators can build Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into curriculum planning and development processes.
