The Honey Ant Readers (HAR) is an exciting literacy program that Indigenous learners can relate to and succeed with.

It is the first ever early reading program in Australia to be developed in collaboration with, and at the request of, Indigenous elders and community and written specifically for speakers of Aboriginal English. It is underpinned by sound pedagogy and second language acquisition theory and supported by songs and rhymes which teach Standard Australian English.

The Honey Ant Readers Teacher's Book comes as a hardcopy, with a digitised version on USB.

It is filled with practical ideas for games using the HAR readers and resources, which are all linked to the Australian Curriculum for ease. The book also has referenced chapters detailing:

  • The rationale underpinning the HARs
  • Information on Aboriginal English
  • Features of the HARs
  • Ideas for learning English through songs and rhymes
  • General notes on teaching reading using the HARs
