This section looks more deeply into the EATSIPS framework and shows how the framework aligns with existing school and classroom processes and practices.
The three components of the framework are:
- personal ethos—reflecting on knowledge and understanding of personal histories, attitudes and perceptions, building a sense of self and knowledge and understanding about others and the impact they have on each other; for example, reflecting personally and professionally using a holistic planning and teaching framework
- whole-school ethos—how the school reflects the values of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, for example, acknowledgement of country and in the school planning process
- classroom ethos—how teachers use curriculum and pedagogy processes and practices to provide a balanced inclusive curriculum, for example, co-operative planning and yarning circles.
In this diagram, the wheel represents embedding perspectives in schools. Spokes represent ways to understand each other’s knowledge frameworks for cultural sharing.
