Listening, learning and reflecting.
Cool Australia is producing 25 lessons for year levels 5–12 that investigate the issues of racism, truth-telling, cultural pride, resilience, mental health, respect and dignity.
Through the lessons, students will learn about taking responsibility for their words, actions and attitudes towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the importance of rejecting racism in all its forms. They will develop skills in active, conscious and reflective listening and communication, along with gaining an understanding of the Five Dimensions of Reconciliation.
