Abstract

The study presents the outcomes of the first two phases of a four phase Australian-based research initiative which seeks to support a better understanding of classroom practices that have value in learning for Aboriginal students. The questions guiding the research are: (1) What do Indigenous students and their parents identify as the pedagogical practices influencing their (child's) learning? (2) What are the statistically validated factors that are identified as composites of a culturally competent teacher, and to what extent are these represented in classrooms? The presentation concludes by presenting a statistically validated Effective Teaching Profile that is currently being applied in the participant schools to determine if there are teaching practices salient to fostering learning for Indigenous students.
