Description
The only Australian inclusive education text that directly applies key theories to classroom practices through problem based/inquiry based learning.

This product provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the context, the fundamentals, and practices of teaching in contemporary Australian schools in which inclusion is an overarching and guiding principle. Inclusion, in this context, covers students who are of above average ability, recent arrivals from other countries, those with an intellectual disability, autism, vision impairment, and with specific literacy and numeracy needs.

It is both a source book and practical guide that systematically introduces the concept of inclusion, practical teaching methods, and strategies to ensure that the learning needs of all students at every level of schooling are identified and accommodated.

Additionally, this product

  • Has respected and updated/current content, mapped to industry standards delivered in a range of customisable formats and affordable price points.
