This resource meets the need identified by educators for more information on cultural aspects in the lives of Aboriginal children and for explicit literacy and numeracy strategies.

Partnerships for Success: It's everyone's business

Teacher resource, 150 pp
RRRP: $37.95
SCIS No: 1232367
ISBN: 0 7308 7790 6
Action research conducted by the Aboriginal Education Unit of the Department of Education and Children's Services (DECS) clearly identified the concept of partnerships as a critical element in achieving successful outcomes for Aboriginal learners of all ages. Partnerships, as described in this document, include collaboration, building relationships and more formal agreements.

The book is divided into three sections: 'Looking in', 'Looking out', and 'Looking forward'. The first section looks at partnerships formed within sites with learners, educators and community members, while the second part of the book investigates the ways in which sites engage outside agencies and the community to build supportive structures for successful learning within sites and beyond. The final section highlights the way that some of the partnerships have grown or been maintained. This document presents results of action research in a number of South Australian schools.
