Abstract

State and Federal education departments have increasingly recognised the importance of community consultation in the development of school curricula, and the requirement for teachers to consult with Indigenous communities is explicit in many curriculum documents. This article reports the findings of research into how teachers of senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies are engaging with consultation as part of their work. As Australia moves towards full implementation of a national curriculum that requires the embedding of Indigenous perspectives across all subjects, an understanding of how teachers are currently experiencing community consultation is particularly important.
