EATSIPS Framework

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.
A wheel represents embedding perspectives in schools; spokes show each other’s knowledge frameworks for cultural sharing.

​The three areas of ethos—or guiding beliefs—that characterise an individual, the school and the classroom work together to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the school. To succeed, this process means working in many areas of school life, as shown in the EATSIPS wheel diagram.
