Abstract

In this chapter the authors propose that productive relationships between teachers and Aboriginal learners need to operate at two interrelated levels. The first level is a “big picture” socio-cultural curriculum relationship based on the REAP framework. The second level is the pedagogical relationship, produced in the verbal, written and symbolic classroom interactions between teachers and students.
