Responding to Learning Difference

Embracing Diversity: Responding to Learning Difference 

Embracing Diversity

This resource is a must read for every educator! Find out how to adjust your teaching to include every learner in your classroom.

Written by Dianne McRoberts, Head of Teaching and Learning Support at St James College in Brisbane, Australia.

A comprehensive information resource package that explains learning differences and lists adjustments for the inclusive classroom.

"A thorough background knowledge and understanding of conditions that impact on learning is fundamental to managing the diversity within classrooms...

... Reference to definitions and features of conditions is not intended to label or classify students but rather provide relevant background information to support teachers address the unique characteristics and specific individual needs of students in their classes...

...The notion of teachers and classroom aides empowering students to become increasingly independent through the acquisition of a repertoire of strategies and metacognitive processes specific to their own learning profile is another aim of this resource."
