This teacher resource is about the maana (moving forward) program that supports Aboriginal students through a whole-school approach to literacy and/or numeracy and cultural inclusion. The program is an extension of the Raising the Bar reform and is implemented in five regional and rural schools in Tasmania. The resource describes how maana schools have high expectations of Aboriginal students, value Aboriginal cultures, apply inclusive pedagogies and practices and set up successful community engagements. The resource discusses the outcomes achieved, identifies the program's research base and provides references and links to relevant readings.
