Moorditj for Schools
Moorditj is highly recommended by the Dare To Lead program and is used in schools across Australia to support an Indigenous perspective across the curriculum. The Dare to Lead program has funded the creation of some 30 units of work that have been written for primary and secondary levels.
New products are now available for teachers: units of work in digital or print format, and a Resource Kit CD-ROM. See School Resources for more details.
