Cultural Immersion & Education Recourse
Yarn Bark is a First Nations Led Social Enterprise that has delivered Cultural Immersion & Education experiences to Primary and Secondary schools for 7+ Years. This first of a kind and easily accessible education recourse has been developed specifically to support educators to confidently deliver meaningful and engaging First Nations Education content to Young People throughout Australia.
The development of this recourse is a result of receiving repetitive feedback from countless educators who have expressed the difficulty associated with identifying meaningful and accurate information sources to inform the design of classroom content and a lack of confidence and awareness to what is culturally appropriate / within their scope to be teaching.
This resource provides well-thought and culturally immersed content for students to deepen their awareness and connection to First Nations Culture, Knowledge, Practices and Ways of Being and supports them to understand how this relates to them in a modern world.
For educators, this is much more than just another recourse to pick up and deliver blindly with limited support. This is an evolving resource that is backed by a safe, caring and collaborative learning environment that inspires, mentors and builds their capacity and confidence to creatively embed First Nations history, peoples and cultures effectively in their classrooms.
