This unit examines and critically reflects on how pre-service teachers can best align their own personal values and beliefs, their political understandings and convictions and their teaching and learning practices, to meet the expectations of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers specifically in being able to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives across curriculum. The unit does this from a foundation of understanding about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Knowings as well as from one that privileges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Knowings. This unit explores the importance of connectedness and relatedness in this context.
