Resource kit for Aborigines of the Hunter Region

The resource kit Aborigines of the Hunter Region is created for teachers and compiled for the Department of Education. It consists of 7 booklets, 10 prints with questions, 45 slides (most in colour), notes to audio visual materials and a sound cassette which features Percy Haslam speaking about the language of the local Aboriginal people. The overriding objective is to educate children of the Hunter Region (comprising many ethnic groups) and foster respect for and an understanding of local Australian people. Scholars who produce this work include: Percy Haslam (Visiting Scholar - Aboriginal Studies - Newcastle University), John Heath (Education Officer Aboriginal Grants and Member of Awabakal Co-op), Bob Jakes (Raymond Terrace High School), Bryce James (Science Consultant, Hunter Region), Bill Needham (Science Teacher, Cessnock High School), Boris Sokoloff (Primary Teacher, Cardiff North Primary School; Curriculum Perspective Consultant, Hunter Region), Helen Vaile (Social Studies Lecturer, Newcastle College of Advanced Education) and John West (Primary Teacher, Cessnock Primary School)
