This assessment requires you to explore how identities are shaped and formed through experiences within our society and culture. Through this task you will further develop your awareness of diversity and experiences of being ‘othered’ in the context of schooling. ‘Cultural plunges’ are cultural immersion experiences that provide exposure to persons or groups markedly different from you. The overall intention behind this plunge is not to be studying the other, but to study yourself as you engage in this experience.
For this assessment task, you are to watch eight of the testimonials from survivors of the Stolen Generation. Pay close attention to what each person says about his/her experiences.
