A pedagogical model for engaging Aboriginal children with science learning

by on Jun, Fri, 2018 in Reading Reviews | 0 comments

This Reading Review looks at an analysis of science lessons delivered by Scitech in Western Australia.  The purpose of the study was to identify pedagogical practices that were particularly effective in engaging Aboriginal students in learning science.  The authors propose a model to underpin approaches to teaching Aboriginal children, and possibly other children, who are not engaged with learning science.
