Learning Resources now available

To help our Online Orchestra participants and any teachers who want to explore the cultural aspects of Morning Star and Evening Star, we have produced a set of Learning Resources. They fall into two sections:

 

  • Morning Star and Evening Star Resources.

A collection of documents, audio and visual files that are FREE for all. Prepared by Candace Kruger and Paula Nihot these resources include the songline, poems, translations, pronunciation guides and cultural context.

  • Suggested Learning Plans

These excellent lesson plans are mapped to the National Curriculum and provide teachers ideas for each year level.  Written and prepared by Candace Kruger and Leanne Kuss.

The Learning Plans align with the National Curriculum in the Arts – Music, Dance, Drama and Media; and English – Language and Literature.  They are available for students in P-10, and will provide you with ideas of how to teach the song, learn the cultural history of the songline and pronounce the Yugambeh words.

A small fee is attached to each Learning Plan package, the profits of which will be returned to the Yugambeh community where this songline originated, via the Yugambeh Youth Aboriginal Corporation.

Learn more or access these resources via the Learning Resources page of this website.
