Unit 1: Nganhthanun Bayan – Year 1 is an Aboriginal language unit for Year 1 students. It aligns to the Australian Curriculum’s Framework for Aboriginal Languages and Torres Strait Islander Languages.
Lesson Objectives
In lessons 1 to 10, students learn to:
  • use pronouns in speech and reading
  • speak and read sentences with person nouns
  • say and read phrases that contain evocative words
  • read and say negative statements
  • say and read questions with yes/no answers
  • read and say commands
  • speak and read phrases including animal nouns
  • read and say sentences with possessive pronouns
  • say and read sentences using pronouns and ‘this’ and ‘that’ words
  • say and read phrases that include family member nouns.
Progress Tests
In Lesson 5, progress tests are given to students. This enables teachers to assess how well they have learned the language so far and to identify the areas that require more instruction. The test questions are in the Teaching Guide, and students record their responses in a Student Workbook.

End-of-Unit Assessment
The final lesson is the End-of-Unit Assessment. It includes a range of question types (such as circle the correct word, sketch an image of something) to evaluate how well students have mastered the unit's material. The Teaching Guide contains the unit assessment. At test time, teachers make copies of the assessment and hand them to the students.
