Aboriginal Peoples and Sport – Option 8
An Aboriginal Studies unit, where students explore the significant role of sport in contributing to Aboriginal identities and to the development of role models for Aboriginal young people.
Students explore sport as an avenue for Aboriginal community communication and participation. They critically analyse the role of sport in breaking down barriers between Aboriginal Peoples and non-Aboriginal people. A case study on the role of sport in the local/regional community can form the basis through which Option 8 is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the option.
