Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge framework

""A curriculum that offers learners an understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander worldviews or ‘knowledge frameworks’ enables students (and teachers) to gain a greater appreciation of the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the differences and similarities between these and their own experiences and worldviews.
 
Uncle Ernie Grant from the Tully area has designed a teaching resource, the Holistic Planning and Teaching Framework, to assist in explaining and focusing on the worldviews and historical perspectives and relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous peoples.
 
This framework and others such as “Yarning Circles” and “Eight Aboriginal Ways of Learning” provide useful tools for teachers in designing lessons that embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
