The focus of this subject is on understanding about diversity within the context of a school environment. The subject will encompass literature and theory about student diversity and support and relate this knowledge to the classroom for students with diverse abilities, and cultural and social diversity. The subject includes differentiated teaching strategies to cater for diverse needs to maximise student learning outcomes. The importance of working with parents/carers and other professionals within ethical, legislative, administrative and organisational requirements will be highlighted.
