Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement

Third Edition

Mervyn Hyde, Lorelei Carpenter, and Shelley Dole

  • Takes the approach that classrooms are diverse, and helps pre-service teachers learn how to manage that, rather than focusing on the individuals that are "diverse"
  • Good balance of skills/practical content and theory. Encourages student to think about the theory and develop their own ideas and techniques
  • Covers a broad range of topics, including gender issues, gifted children in the classroom, students with indigenous heritage and with English as a second language
  • Includes chapters specifically on different types of diversity
  • Excellent range of learning features to assist student learning
  • Locates the principles of inclusion within international and national obligations, as well as national legislation and policy
  • Re-conceptualises the issues around children who present challenging behaviours for their schools and families, whether these behaviours are a concern of themselves, or associated with a primary disability such as Autism Spectrum Disorder

New to this Edition:

  • All content and references have been updated. Increased focus on early intervention with young children, including coverage of all age groups across case studies. Focus on the use of technology in the classroom to support diverse learner needs. New Chapter - Chapter 16 Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing: Promotion, Prevention and Intervention - which responds to the current focus on mental health and well-being in education. Case studies (now called "Stories from the Classroom") have been refreshed across all chapters. These have been expanded to include parents, teaching aides, and other important groups. Discusses the increasing focus within Teacher Education degrees, and across the profession, on all teachers being responsible for supporting the needs of diverse learners in every classroom, rather than this being the province of specially trained teachers.
