Theory Assignment 3

Inclusion, equality and diversity can be promoted by identifying the boundaries and barriers of students, which should be supervised till the end of the course. This will also benefit the learning experience as a group and help overcome the boundaries thus giving an identity to every learner. Each learner is different due to their previous experiences, and so teaching has to be designed to meet individual learner’s needs, where different strategies have to be used to promote inclusive learning. All the factors like gender, race, age, religion and other social needs have to be taken into account to promote diversity. All learners should be given equal rights to participate in all activities of learning regardless of age, sex, religion and race.

Inclusion:

Inclusion is about creating a secure, accepting and motivating environment, where every student is valued thereby creating a foundation for good achievement for all students.

  • A teacher has to identify the various needs of learners, through assessments and monitor their performance throughout the course. Additional time has to be taken to teach new concept in several ways, allowing greater understanding. Teacher should be committed to educate each child to the maximum extent. Students with special educational needs should be provided support services in the same class as the other students rather than isolating them from normal students. All students regardless of physical and special needs will be in regular classroom where different teaching styles are practised to include every student, for example body language, facial expression, large fonts, Braille documents.

Equality:

Equality is making sure that every student is treated in the same way and their needs are met in different ways. All learners are entitled to education according their needs, regardless of any difference.

  • A teacher has to be aware of the different learning styles of each student and be patient, listen and help learners overcome their learning difficulties. Learning challenges should be set appropriate to different pupils, promoting equality through different teaching methods. Discrimination, bullying and other issues have to be addressed. Good behaviour has to be managed and accesses to additional resources have to be available for learners with disabilities or difficulties.

Diversity:

Diversity is valuing individual differences, regardless of age, sex, religion, race, nationality.

  • A teacher has to recognise the differences and also the reality that all students do not learn in the same way. Teaching a diverse group of students needs monitoring student progress, and responding to student input. The cultural backgrounds, interpersonal relationships, sociability and expectations of every learner have to be taken into account, as each individual brings with them diverse perspectives, work experiences, life styles and cultures.

Other points of referral:

  • Design lessons that include realistic and achievable expectations, allowing children of different abilities to work at different levels on different activities.
  • Design an inclusive curriculum.
  • Engage learners actively.
  • Follow the twenty minutes cycle, where the teacher delivers teaching and hands out activities
  • Emphasize the value of social interaction.
  • Relate academic content to student’s environment and experience.
  • Offer opportunities to apply their learning.

Understanding that we don't all learn the same way due to the many factors you mentioned is critical to getting your message across.

Hey Livingsta, you did it again. Great hub! I embrace diversity, people with different points of view always bring a unique prospective to the table. We get stuck in our own "world view" and it's so cool when someone says, "what about looking at it like this?" Great hub and very well written.Voted up!
