School Program

The Western Australian Department of Education and Training LOTE program have developed a number of resources which may be of use to you.

In particular the Framework for Teaching Aboriginal Languages in Primary Schools (1993), written by Joyce Hudson, is a very good resource. Developed as a generic resource for the teaching of all Aboriginal languages, the framework is designed to be used in primary schools with a significant proportion of aboriginal students from a variety of language backgrounds. It is based on the Australian Language Levels (ALL) Guidelines and contains six modules:

  • Learning to talk

  • Understanding a story

  • Extanding the language

  • Learning about languages

  • Learning through local themes

  • Learning about people and places

To obtain copies of this resource and to see the others available have a look at their website.
