Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education addresses key issues and challenges faced by teacher education students and assists them to understand the deeper social, cultural and historical factors shaping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. Using the personal accounts of the authors as a starting point, the third edition features applied learning activities, critical thinking questions and real-life examples. Short-answer and review questions facilitate independent as well as group study, allowing readers to explore and reflect upon the core themes and thinking points of each chapter. All chapters have been fully revised and two new chapters, on the arts and science, broaden the coverage of this important textbook. Engagingly written by respected and experienced Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics and educators, this book continues to be an essential resource for students and teachers.
