The Health and Cultural Diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
Assessment task 1 (Part a): Individual Report – Group Presentation.
Learning Outcomes Assessed.
Application of knowledge and skills:
Examine and discuss what is culture and identity and reflect on how your own identity, along with social and cultural factors, have influenced your own beliefs about and interactions with Aboriginal People and/or Torres Strait Islander People.
The purpose of this task is for students to demonstrate understanding of what culture and identity is and how identity, along with social and cultural factors can influence beliefs and values.
Students need to also look inward and recognise their own culture and how their own values and beliefs influence the way they view the world and see other people.
To enable us to understand other cultures, we must first recognise that we all have our own culture.
