Synopsis

Using a combination of self-paced online instruction and face to face delivery, students will explore the resistance history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Students will engage in research and readings related to the study skills of summarising, reading for meaning and sentence construction. Alongside an investigation of the `History Wars', written resistance texts and debates around representation will be explored. This course focuses on the power of the written word and the power of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writing. General study skills will be delivered alongside an analysis of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander written resistance history. The conventions of academic writing will be made explicit beginning with subject position, sentence structure and paragraph breakdowns.
