Playing the Game of School Mathematics: Being Explicit for Indigenous Learners and Access to Learning
Jorgensen, Robyn
Intercultural Education, v27 n4 p321-336 2016
Drawing on studies of successful remote schools in one region of Australia, it was found that two key strategies were common in the approaches at these schools. First, to make the strategies and expectations being adopted explicit to all those involved in the learning enterprise, and second, that consistency in approaches was crucial. Bourdieu's theoretical project is used to understand how the practices are being adopted by the schools and how they contribute to the success of learners of mathematics.
