ATYP On Demand plus is a complete digital education package for Primary teachers, using drama and literacy strategies to teach the F-6 curriculum. An annual subscription provides detailed 8-week units of work with accompanying resources, suggested activities and instructional videos led by ATYP Teaching Artists. Initial units are linked to the History curriculum, with new units to come in 2022.
The First Nations Connections unit for years 3-4 uses drama strategies and other embodied methods to explore the important ways in which First Nations Peoples in Australia are deeply connected to Country/Place, culture, family and community. This unit is an excellent introduction for students to undertake before studying the European colonisation of Australia and subsequent historical events. By looking at history through an Indigenous lens, primary students from all backgrounds will gain a greater empathy towards Indigenous Australians and a deeper understanding of their languages, cultures and histories.
