Overview
The Third Space series is a unique project designed in response to the Australian Curriculum's inclusion of the key elements of diversity competence: intercultural and ethical understanding, personal and social capability, and critical and creative thinking. Comprised of thirteen novellas, The Third Space aims to equip students with the requisite understandings, skills, attitudes and dispositions to deal with difference through reading stories focussed on young protagonists. This series takes students on an introductory journey out of their own world and into the intriguing world of human diversity. Students are given a unique opportunity to step out of their own space and into 'the third space' ' a space where people of different cultural, racial and belief systems are understood and respected. The novellas provide the conceptual tools and imaginative space to help students discover and participate in this 'third space' where multi-culture and multi-faith are key components of a society that is rich, harmonious and inclusive. Archana and her big brother Aaditya are comfortable around their friends, but not around each other. And Aaditya really isn't interested in their parents being all 'Hindu' around them. The last thing he wants is all his friends finding out how 'weird' a Diwali ceremony is. Why not let things just slide on by as they are? Why rock the boat? But then the boat gets rocked in a much different way than all of them expected, and everything has to change. But will it be for the better?
