It was the last wish of the poet and educator Oodgeroo of the Tribe Noonuccal (formerly known as Kath Walker) for all Australian students to be taught Aboriginal Studies and learn the truth about this country. She instigated the project 'Teaching the Teachers' to promote Aboriginal Studies in schools, and this book is a major component of this project. Teaching Aboriginal Studies is a resource for teacher education and a practical guide for both new and experienced teachers in primary and secondary schools. Chapters on Aboriginal history and culture, stereotypes and racism, government policies and reconciliation provide essential background knowledge. There are also strategies and resources for teaching Aboriginal Studies in different contexts, and understanding Aboriginal learning styles.

The text is illustrated with photographs, paintings, prints and cartoons. This book is the product of consultation and collaboration across Australia. Respected contributors, Indigenous and other Australians, include
