Jandamarra-Mark Greenwood. Teachers Notes

Jandamarra-Mark Greenwood. Teachers Notes | History Resources and Ideas for Teaching | Scoop.it

‘Burrudi yatharra thirrili ngarra’

We are still here and strong. Jandamarra was an Indigenous hero...whose white ‘bosses’ called him Pigeon. He knew in his heart that the country was inscribed by powerful spirits in the contours of its landscape.The Wandjinas created the land and sky. They also created the spirits that swim in the water soaks and sacred places. Pigeon couldn't see them, but these spirits visited his dreams. Jandamarra's story is an epic and tragic tale which Mark Greenwood has re-told in a simple and yet majestic style, accompanied by Terry Denton’s vibrantly graphic, illustrative interpretation. This is a creative re-imagining of the life of an extraordinary man and of a seminal time in Australia’s history.The reverberations of the events known as the ‘frontier wars’ are still being felt more than one hundred years later and will continue to have an impact on our national psyche.

Jandamarra and his people are still here, and they are still strong.

This book might be studied in lower and upper primary, and also lower secondary classrooms. It is relevant in Australian Curriculum: English; History and The Arts. Also fabulous links to the Cross Curriculum Priority: Aboriginal histories and culture. Jandamarra could also be used to explore such themes as...National Heroes, Indigenous History and Culture,Frontier Wars, Magic and Spiritual Power, Kinship and Community and Values such as: Bravery and Justice

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:10 PM

This is a book i have found that many teachers are using in both upper and lower primary in order to teach students Australian History.  The book foccuses on the life of a man in a seminal time in Australian History a foccusing on the Jandamarra people. I belive this would be a fantastic resource to use in the classroom, especially for upper primary students who are starting to do pursuasive writing a book responces. This book will enage students as well as giving them insight into life as a "Jadamarra person, and therefore how we have evolved and changed thorughout history. 

This particular link gives a wide range of teachers notes and questions that can be used in the classroom with this book. Which is clearly a great resource for teachers to have when approaching basing a lesson on this book.

The Australian Curriculum v7.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures

The Australian Curriculum v7.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures | History Resources and Ideas for Teaching | Scoop.it

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Identity is central to this priority and is intrinsically linked to living, learning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, deep knowledge traditions and holistic world view.

A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. This sense of Identity is approached through the interconnected aspects of Country/Place, People and Culture. Embracing these elements enhances all areas of the curriculum.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.

Primary teachers need to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching. Use the ideas in this website to frame planning.

Clare O'Connor's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:32 AM

This is going to be a Cross-curricular priority, so I thought it useful to add for our RMLP teachers and in-house education providers.

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:17 AM

I thought it would be a really helpful resource to store a direct link to the cross-curriculum priorities page on the ACARA website. This links to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories and cultures cross-curricular priority information page. As teachers you need to link you lesson and unit plans to the Australian Curriculum, and anything that falls under this priority can be justified as a viable learning outcome, because of the priority. Which I think is great, students and teachers need to learn about our indigenous history.
