    Abstract

    This chapter outlines the key arguments for why teachers need to consider opening productive dialogues between themselves and Aboriginal families and communities. It argues that these interactions have been shown to affect the needs of not just students, but of teachers themselves, and that outcomes of this engagement provides teachers with the knowledge and skills required to contextualize their practice and affect a real and sustained change in all students learning.
