Learning and Teaching in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education 3rd edition helps pre-service teachers prepare themselves for teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in urban, remote and rural primary and secondary schools. It also prepares teachers to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their programming. The overall aim of this text is to ‘keep things local’ as working closely with the local community is absolutely crucial to successful teaching in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.

This book balances educational theory with practical teaching strategies. It is full of case studies, examples and a range of voices and personal stories from students, pre-service teachers, indigenous community members to convey the richness and diversity of Australian classrooms.
