THE ABORIGINAL EARLY CHILDHOOD PRACTICE GUIDE – Multiverse CEO Dr Red Ruby Scarlet and Jessica Staines edited and co-ordinated this publication that explains to early childhood educators how to teach Aboriginal culture to children. The book aims to give educators a ‘licence’ and knowledge about sharing culture. Previously educators had shied away from teaching culture as they had no guidelines for appropriate methods. The book shares examples of teaching practice that illustrate how both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal educators and teachers have engaged with local communities to learn about their local Aboriginal history.
The book has been a sell out success and is now used widely in early childhood centres.
