Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander educators provide learning suggestions relevant to cultural knowledge. They understand local ways of being, knowing and doing and can provide or seek advice from community members about cultural considerations and incorporating local content into the learning program.
Effective planning involves teams thinking about, talking about and making decisions about the what, the why and the how of teaching and learning and preparing resources and practicing activities. It is ideal to set aside time for the teaching team to reflect on the day’s teaching and to plan and prepare for the next day. Planning together will support the team to teach and assess together, with each member taking responsibility for student learning.
