Context ICP601 Inclusive classroom practice

As educational practitioners, you are/will be required to design and implement learning experiences for a range of students. The first step in this process is to gather and analyse information about students, so that you can use this understanding to develop appropriate practical plans to meet their needs.

This assessment presents 3 case studies to analyse and gives you the opportunity to consider how you would address inclusion for these groups.

Instructions:

To prepare for this assessment:

Examine and analyse each of the following case studies (presented in the Module 3’s required resources) in terms of the needs of individuals and groups within the classes.

  1. Year 2/3 composite class in remote South Australia
  2. Year 7 class in suburban Melbourne
  3. Year 11 class in inner-city Sydney

Case study analysis and lessons:

Select one of the case studies to explore in detail and present a practical plan for a set of 4 lessons in the subject/topic of your choice that exemplifies a celebration of diversity and effective inclusive practice.

Present your analysis of the chosen case study in report form and your lessons in the format of your choice in a single document.

  • Case study analysis (maximum 1000 words)
    • Title of your chosen case study (eg Year 2/3, rural South Australia)
    • Analysis of the range of diversity within your chosen class and its implications for lesson design.
  • Lesson plans (x4)
    • Aims (refer to ACARA standards)
    • Objectives/goals specific to each lesson
    • Resources
    • Anticipatory set (tap into prior knowledge; give objectives a context; engage students
    • Learning experiences (whole class; groups; individual)
    • Assessment techniques (formative and/or summative)
    • Lesson closure
    • Plan for evaluation
  • Closure
    • Write a short rationale that explains your choices of resources and learning experiences in terms of inclusive practice. This rationale should cover the set of 4 lessons as a whole.

Submission Instructions:

Submit the paper via the Assessment link in the main navigation menu in ICP601: Inclusive Classroom Practice. The Learning Facilitator will provide feedback via the Grade Centre in the LMS portal. Feedback can be viewed in My Grades.
