Learning Sequence for Indigenous Studies Essay
This is not an essay but it is the closest thing I could compare it to.
This task requires you to develop a learning sequence for Indigenous studies and develop an educational resource as part of that sequence or draw on resources that exist. You are asked to identify the student cohort for whose learning needs you are designing the learning sequence (i.e. class level, geographic location in Australia and ethno-cultural mix, amongst others). Develop a plan for three or more weeks of activities in a form that suits the context. You should include in the sequence the meaning-giving context, an outline of activities in their developmental sequence, their intended learning outcomes, pedagogical approaches, accommodation of learning abilities and needs, and means and uses of assessment. The learning sequence is to be justified with a sound theoretical rationale where you draw on the theory that informs inclusion of Aboriginal studies, non-Indigenous studies and learning styles. Using in text references from scholarly literature/sources to support and also using The Australian History Curriculum throughout and using it as a foundation for the learning sequence always referring to it and referencing it where necessary.
