At Sharing Culture, we pride ourselves on developing culturally appropriate resources for Australian schools. All of our education resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum to ensure they meet the needs of Education Departments, Teachers and Students.
The Sharing Culture team has been working very hard to bring you a new range of programs for education. Below
are some of the resources and programs we have developed for schools.
Some are stand alone resources that you can use immediately, and some
require the input of the Local Aboriginal Community. If you want to

New Unit on Macassan Trade with North East Arnhem Land
We're so excited to announce the release of our latest exciting resource, a complete Unit on Macassan and Yolngu History. The Unit can be delivered
immediately by anyone, is aligned with ACARA History Curriculum and is ideal for year levels 6 - 10. The Macassan and Yolngu History
Unit takes students and teachers on a journey to North East Arnhemland through a series of step by step lessons. Most of the lessons are complimented with a wide variety of multi-media resources
including video, sound and interactive resources including an interactive Yolngu (Aboriginal) Seasonal Calendar. The Unit offers an authentic insight from a Yolngu (Aboriginal) perspective and shares stories about the long term trade and the lasting influences of the interactions with our Macassan (Indonesian) neighbours.

Sharing Culture Teaching & Learning Program
We're taking Aboriginal education to a whole new level with an approach that's inclusive and is being taken up by Communities across the country. The
cutting edge Teaching & Learning Program is extremely flexible and can
be adapted to various educational and community needs. There's an abundance of teaching resources, with activities for
students including literacy activities, language learning activities,
Aboriginal history, culture and art and other materials to support
everything we can to ensure that most of the materials are also suitable
for Local Aboriginal Communities to adapt the resources to meet the
needs of their Community. All of our materials go through a heavy consultation process
with a range of people including Elders and Community Leaders,
Aboriginal Community Members, Education Department Managers, Principals,
Teachers, Parents and Students.
the best results, we highly recommend that Aboriginal language and
culture is taught by an Aboriginal person from the local area. There may
be times where this isn't possible, so permission should be sought and
consent given by the Community for other people to deliver local
Indigenous content. Learn more about the Teaching & Learning Program here.
