Unit 2: Nganhthanun Bubu – Foundation Year is an Aboriginal language unit for Foundation Year 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: 
  • say the number nubuun and use it in a sentence
  • say and make the numbers guthiirra and guunduu in a sentence
  • make and say sentences about looking and policeman

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) 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.
