Assessment Task 2 Differentiation and catering for differences

Differentiation is a process of adapting curricula and classroom environments to promote quality learning for all students. This task provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate an understanding of how inclusive practice can be achieved through responsive teaching and the selection of strategies that effectively cater for the characteristics of a diverse range of learners. To complete this task you will submit a written response of 2000 words (maximum) addressing each of the sections below:

Labelling and the rights of all students to access education (400-500 words)

There are on-going debates about the efficacy of inclusion and labelling with different attitudes and perceptions raised by students, parents and teachers regarding access to education.

Identify and discuss these arguments, focussing on how legislative requirements and teaching strategies support participation and learning of students with disability (APST 1.6).

You will also need to address how you intend to support the general wellbeing and safety of students (APST 4.4).

Personal approach to differentiation (400-500 words)

You will now be aware that your classroom will have a diverse range of students with specific characteristics that affect their learning, ranging from cultural, linguistic, social-emotional, cognitive and physical disabilities, learning difficulties and socioeconomic differences

Using unit readings and your set text select, describe behaviour management and teaching strategies along with other important practices that are claimed to be responsive to the strengths and needs of diverse learners (APST 1.3 & 4.3).

You will need to outline how you would use these to establish inclusive practice in your classroom (APST 4.1).

Catering for Gifted and Talented learners (300-400 words)

Gifted and talented students are a group of specific learners that are often missed within the busy classroom.

Demonstrate what management and teaching strategies would you use to cater for this group of learners; and consider the ways you could meet the specific learning needs of students across the full range of abilities (APST 1.5).

Fostering positive relationships and quality education and care (400-500 words)

Demonstrate how your approach to differentiation would foster positive social relationships and well-being between teachers and diverse learners, families and communities in education / care settings.

You will need to focus on how you will involve parents in the educative process (APST 3.7) in an effective, sensitive and confidential way (APST 7.3).
