  • working with Elders to map community-wide links between families according to known kin links

  • creating a profile to capture their sense of personal identity, for example, through an avatar or montage, using key words and expressions and commenting on the significance of particular events, influences or interactions
  • considering how their individual upbringing and experiences impact on their assumptions/attitudes when participating in intercultural interactions, for example, in relation to notions of leisure/free time or family and community responsibilities
  • talking about ways local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities express elements of their shared identity, for example, through behaviours associated with sporting teams, distinctions between coastal versus inland communities, through community events and profiling of identities from their community
  • noticing and comparing their use of words or expressions from different languages when communicating in English and discussing how this relates to their sense of identity
  • monitoring their development as learners of the language, for example, by recording learning experiences, reflections in blogs, learning logs or journals
  • identifying markers of identity that may be important across all cultures, for example, family, community, location, language, age, gender
