Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education: An Introduction for the Teaching Profession assists in preparing initial teacher education (ITE)students for the classroom and community environments they will encounter when teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in urban, rural and remote schools at early childhood, primary and secondary levels. The book addresses many issues and challenges faced by teacher education students and assists them to understand the deeper social, cultural and historical context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. This is a unique textbook written by a team of highly regarded Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics, and the first textbook to address Torres Strait Islander education. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this book is an essential resource for teacher education students.
