The resources available to teachers for use within the classroom relating to Koorie Literature and education are consistently growing as we begin to develop greater cultural competence as educators and are seeking to effectively and accurately teach our students more about Australia’s history and diversity.  

Much of the current Koorie literature available is highly relevant and reflective and can be found in local libraries, large murals throughout our cities, through a growing representation on film and television.  There are age appropriate resources available for all levels to explore within the classroom and is best found through links within the Australian Curriulum, Australian Government, Indigenous Education groups.

Being mindful of culturally appropriate exposure and experience through hands on learning, authentic (not tokenistic experiences) and with the support of local Indigenous groups will help ensure we are developing thoughtful citizens with accurate knowledge and understandings of our Indigenous Australians.
