Finding the right alignments and opportunities  to embed a concept or topic into the National Curriculum is imperative to ensure that your resources are relevant to students learning in the classroom.

In 2013, Sally  project managed and co-authored  a set of 5 Educational Workbooks for the Ration Shed Museum at Cherbourg’s Historical Precinct.  These 5 Workbooks (Sally Lawrence, Cindy Bin Tahal and Gaynor Williams) and History book (written by Jo Beasley, Lesley Williams, Robyn Hofmeyr, Mark Newman) recently won the 2014 Museums Australia – MAGNA awards for Indigenous Project or Keeping Place.  The MAGNA’S recognise excellent work nationally and is a part of Museums Australia annual awards program.  In 2015, Sally was the lead researcher for The Boys from Barambah – ANZAC 100 Project.  Along with her research and writing, Sally collaborated with a team to develop a suite of resources to share the Black Diggers Story of Cherbourg.  This includes a book, a documentary, website and exhibition.  Visit www.cherbourgmemory.org for more information.

All profits from the sale of these workbooks go to the Ration Shed Museum, enabling them to continue to develop educational resources, programs and exhibits that share the story of the people and history of Cherbourg.  Visit www.rationshed.com.au for sales and information.

In 2014, Sally undertook a Curriculum review for Jodie and Gadj Maymuru’s – Sharing Culture – Teaching and Learning Program to align the program and Teaching Guides to the Australian Curriculum: Languages – Framework for Aboriginal Languages and Torres Strait Islander Languages. This work enabled her to professionally enhance her understanding of another aspect of the National Curriculum, and strengthen knowledge of the complexity of Aboriginal Languages and Protocols.  This pioneering program and on-line portal created by Jodie and Gadj Maymuru is an outstanding example of how digital technologies can support, enhance and revitalise the worlds ol dest living culture.  A true model for sharing culture.
