Title:The National Curriculum Framework for Australian Indigenous languages
Bibliographic Citation:Marmion, Doug, Troy, Jaky, Bradshaw, Suzanne, Marmion, Doug, Troy, Jaky, Bradshaw, Suzanne; 2013-03-02; This presentation reports on efforts to develop a single curriculum framework intended to support the teaching of Indigenous Australian languages in schools. The Australian government has recently begun the process of developing national curricula in a number of priority learning areas, one of which is languages. This has included Australian Indigenous languages but as the curriculum is intended to cover all of Australia’s Indigenous languages it requires a framework that is able to support the teaching of almost any of Australia’s Indigenous languages, ranging from those languages no longer with full speakers (‘sleeping’ languages) to those spoken by all generations. This has made the task complex and challenging and required careful consideration of the range of situations both of languages and of potential learners. In this presentation we will: • Describe the process of development of this curriculum framework and the various challenges and issues that had to be considered; • Explore the various educational and social benefits of learning an Australian language, for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students; • Discuss the rationale for having a single curriculum framework; • Provide an overview of the key design features that make this framework applicable to a wide variety of language situations and learners; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;http://hdl.handle.net/10125/26092.
