Supporting cross-curriculum learning priorities with literacy resources
Working in collaboration with the National Museum of Australia, First Australians: Plenty Stories is a comprehensive series that draws on a range of sources to tell stories about significant issues facing Indigenous Australians. The series has been developed around three key themes: Our Places, Our Culture and Our Voices.
The Australian Curriculum lists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies as a cross-curriculum priority, allowing students to broaden their horizons by learning about the world's oldest continuous living cultures. This series supports the related curriculum priority with cross-curriculum resources that can be used for literacy, geography, history or cultural classes.
Within the series are resources for Middle Primary and Upper Primary.
A poster pack is available for both Middle Primary and Upper Primary.
The poster packs have been developed to provide an introduction to each book and its themes, and offer effective teaching tools and strategies for the whole series.
Each poster includes questions to promote group discussion and additional information for teachers. There are ten posters in each pack, in each level.
