**NEW** AIATSIS Guide to evaluating and selecting education resources
The AIATSIS Guide to evaluating and selecting education resources assists educators to critically self-reflect on their positionality and supports them to work from a foundation of integrity.
It allows teachers to ensure curriculum resources selected for teaching do not cause harm to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, but rather foster trust and build a sense of pride for all.
Educators must make conscious and critical decisions when selecting curriculum resources to ensure they reflect all children, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The Guide supports teachers to select appropriate resources for teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures, and languages respectfully and effectively.
