"I will walk you through the concerns that educators have about where to start teaching First Nations history and culture in your classroom. Some of you will have already started and we can build upon that too with an aim to embed First Nations culture and history into your everyday. I will use the beautiful books from the ILF's website, that include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language, and give you ideas on how you can utilise them in your classroom.
You will leave feeling a little more comfortable, with some new direction and tips to get you going. We will have some fun together, exploring books and talking about possibilities."
PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE AVAILABLE TO 30 NOVEMBER 2021 ONLY.

To celebrate storytelling, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is excited to offer seven unique pre-recorded, learning workshops from our most awarded ambassadors and ILF supporters.
Each presenter shares their incredible expertise in storytelling, whether it be through illustration, writing, video or photography. Each workshop suggests an age suitability.
At $2 per student under 18 years of age (with a minimum of 5 students) and $20 per adult, our aim is for everyone to have an opportunity to experience a workshop. Parents and home-schoolers under 18 years of age, can register under the school/education tab.
Workshops are free to remote Indigenous community schools that are registered with ILF. If you are a remote Indigenous community school or organisation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For schools/educators and businesses, only one booking is needed for any number of participants. Once a booking has been made, a dedicated password will be emailed giving you access to a link to share with students or staff.
The link will expire within 3 months of booking. If you would like to book more than one workshop, please complete a separate booking form.
How are these proceeds used?
All proceeds from the workshops will assist the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to deliver its three core literacy programs in remote communities across Australia in 2022.
