With a prioritised focus on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures featured throughout the text, and a greater focus on using ICT in the classroom, pre-service teachers will be well-equipped with the knowledge of what kinds of activities they can include in and out of the classroom for an enriching learning experience for their students.


  • A brand new chapter on using games in the classroom.

  • Student work examples illustrate what to expect with developing readers and writers.

  • Videos with Shelley Ware and Jessa Rogers discuss ways of bringing meaningful Indigenous content in and out of the classroom.
