Teaching for diversity is a professional imperative and the responsibility of all teachers. The aim of this unit is to ensure that teacher education students develop understandings of and expertise in working with diverse student cohorts. It will develop their competency in designing appropriate pedagogies and curricula that attend to difference and will familiarise students with current policy initiatives and frameworks. Specifically, the unit develops students’ understandings of the complex and multiple ways in which cultural, class, gender and other differences are enacted in the secondary classroom. The unit focuses on independent research and exploration of the ethical responsibilities that educators have to teach for diversity, and how curriculum, pedagogies and assessment approaches can address diversity.
