About the History of the First Australians Set 3
An extensive research project was conducted over several years to compile the content for this series. The research links and information will form part of the resources for this series. It was rewritten to be read by early and intermediate stages of Grades 1-3. It can be used as content by fluent readers but was levelled to indicate the level of fluency needed.
The authors of the History of the First Australians Set 3 readers are First Nations people, who are proudly passing on cultural and personal stories, written with a focus on literacy and ACARA requirements.
The full range of History of the First Australians readers are designed to address issues of diversity and cultural authenticity in the Australian classroom, and to counter the effects of monoculture. From The challenge of monoculturalism: what books are educators sharing with children and what messages do they send? by Adam & Barratt-Pugh, published by The Australian Educational Researcher:
Access to suitable texts has additional implications for the publishing industry where greater awareness of and attention to the demands of diversity may be needed to encourage publication of culturally authentic books which reflect Australia’s diversity and are suitable for this age group. Improved access to quality culturally authentic children’s literature is important if the principles of diversity that lie at the heart of Australian educational policy are to be achieved.
With these books, we hope we're doing our part!
The topics chosen were comprehensive and succinct to give an introduction to the many broad areas of study. The First Peoples were not a homogenous group but waves of peoples forming different tribes and groups. Their response in terms of hunting and gathering differed based on climates, food supplies, and skills. The spread of the peoples and the extended period of settlement led to complex kinships structures, oral histories, dance and belief systems which were unique for each of these tribes. These topics for part of the reader series and become an ideal discussion starter and introduction to many aspects of the First Australians.
Beautifully illustrated with original art - these are an ideal addition to any Indigenous or reader series in schools. These would be ideal as Take Home Readers, Guided Readers or HiLo readers. The content is suitable for any study of Indigenous Australians. ACARA place Indigenous context as a priority area and with the inclusion of literacy blocks this series is able to be programmed covering both requirements. A valuable resource addition to any school!
