Abstract
How can cultural responsiveness towards Indigenous students be truly embedded in teaching
pedagogy and national standards? In this book, Perso and Hayward (2015) seek to provide
teachers with practical tools for working effectively with Indigenous students in school
settings. This book is written with the teacher in mind, presenting a contemporary tone
about the complexities of culturally responsive, quality teaching and learning, across
various stages of teaching and assessment. The authors preface their book by emphasising
the relevance of strategies for all students, thus demystifying the ‘exotification’ of Indigenous
learners, with competencies based upon the individualisation of learning for all students.
