    Can I ask if this unit was written by or in consultation with First Nations People? If not, have you had it endorsed by First Nations People?

    • Trish (Teach Starter)

      Hi Belinda, Thank you for your question. I can tell you that the resource was not created in collaboration with a particular First Nations people or community, but at the time the resource was made, Teach Starter was working with Dirrabou Consultancy who ran a full-day workshop with our staff, helping to clarify and increase our own awareness and understanding of how to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into the resources that we make for you.

    In the lesson plan pdf, there is a link to browse indigenous Australian collection... which doesn't work...

      Hello Keiron, we have had some updates to our website which resulted in some of our website links not working. This has been tended to so the links should now be working. If you have any further issues with links, please do not hesitate to contact us.
