Teaching and Learning in Indigenous Education prepares students for both the classroom and community environments they will encounter when teaching indigenous children in urban, rural and remote primary and secondary schools. A strong practical focus including 'Learning from Experience' examples is balanced with a dose of theory to equip future teachers with the skills to adapt their teaching to the needs of individual students. Helpful tips on how to manage changes to lifestyle while adjusting to different cultural environments contribute to making the book an essential text.
