Millennium Fellowship Project: Homework Heroes

1 in 4 children are exposed to domestic violence situations; so, they are present in every classroom. Schools and schoolteachers need to be effectively trained in trauma awareness pedagogies to best support these children and eliminate disparities.

As future educators, we are passionate about authentic educational experiences for preservice teachers (PSTs) and fundamentally believe that trauma awareness training should be the norm in teacher education.

Homework Heroes was born from our shared desire in developing our teacher identities to align with sustainable development goal four and Australia's Alice Springs declaration – both of which with the aim for inclusive and equitable education and lifelong learning opportunities for every child, no matter where they live or what kind of learning challenges they face.
