Posted on: Wednesday, 19 September 2018 10:48:13 AM AEST
Hello to all of our Students in Aboriginal Sydney Now,
Firstly, assessment 2 has been graded. We highly recommend that students read all of the comments that our markers have provided. This feedback will be useful for completetng the last assessment.
Assessment 3 - Information.
Due: Midnight Sunday 14th october 2018
We have had some email enquiries about the last assessment. We do not have access to sample assessments, however the information below should answer most questions.
In the past students have presented their E-Portfolios as power points, webpages, brochures etc. the format is really up to you, however it is important that we are able to access it easily in order to grade it. (If you do a power point it is better to save it as a PDF, to minimize issues with turn it in)
Students that produce resources such as weebly, google docs or prezi etc, need to upload their submission page with a link to their assessment. This way there is a record on turn it if the date it was submitted and staff will be able to access the assessments and then add grades and comments into the tum it in system.
Have a look also at the information table under the assessments tab on blackboard.

Firstly, you will need to identify the area you will investigate and map it. From here your analysis can be based in your own area of expertise. The key points of the assessment here are
1. To develop a sense of how Indigenous culture influences your local area (who has control over how it is presented, how does it portrait Indigenous Australians?)
2. to 'see' the community from an Indigenous perspective
For example: if you were studying media, you might analyse the motivation behind the representation of Indigenous people in your community (tourism, reconciliation, empowerment of Indigenous people or education of non-Indigenous people about Indigenous people). You can then use materials presented in this unit,(specific readings, lectures, Redfern Now episode) with additional scholarly readings to support your analysis.
Most students pass this assessment by displaying an understanding of the representation of Indigenous Australians in their local community. Students that earned higher grades analysed this representation from an Indigenous perspective in regard to ownership, authenticity, respect and/or motivation behind the way in which Indigenous Australians are represented in their chosen community.
