This unit provokes teachers to reflect upon their crucial role in working within the inclusive classroom, which encompasses all students regardless of any labelling given by other professionals (e.g. physical impairments; specific learning needs; mental health or behavioural issues; gifts and talents and non-English Speaking Backgrounds). The unit is designed to advance students' understanding of learners' needs and encourage students' to consider the cultural, political and social issues pertaining to the design and delivery of curriculum (including Individual Learning Plans) that encompasses the strengths of every student.

Students' will consider how to approach colleagues, experts and communities for assistance in planning and delivery of curriculum, the use of positive behaviour support, in addition to working effectively with parents and caregivers. The unit introduces a broad range of community supports; child and adolescent mental health care system; Australian Refugee and Special Humanitarian Program, Department of Human Services, and Child Protection in order to support students from traumatised backgrounds; and those who are placed into care whilst attending school. Students will critically analyse the literature, theories and practices in Australia and abroad pertaining to inclusive classrooms and evaluate the appropriate curriculum models for specific school contexts and learner needs, interests and backgrounds.
