About this Unit
In 2020 this unit replaced by 102746 - Inclusive Education: Principles and Practices. This unit examines mandatory Special Education requirements. Pre-service teachers need to understand the theory, policy and practices of teaching and learning Inclusive Education and respond in an engaged manner to the diversity of intellectual, emotional, social and physical needs of all children in the regular secondary classroom. Appropriate skills, strategies, attitudes and methodologies will be addressed through an inquiry learning approach to enable students to plan, implement and evaluate programs that meet the educational diverse needs of individual secondary students with disabilities, learning difficulties and/or behaviour disorders. Strategies and theories for effectively integrating and including all secondary students with special needs, as well as knowledge of Australian and NSW government policy and legislation and teachers’ responsibilities within these will be addressed. The role and value of inclusive education and its relationship with literacy, numeracy and classroom management will also be addressed.
