ETHW306 W Inclusive Education Definition of inclusion: Inclusion is about increasing the participation of learners in and reducing their exclusion from the cultures, curricula, and communities of local schools. It involves restructuring the cultures, policies and practices in schools so that they respond to the diversity of learners. It is concerned with the learning and participation of all learners vulnerable to exclusionary pressures, not only those with impairments or those categorised as experiencing barriers to learning and development .

Mainstream or Integration Mainstreaming is about getting learners to ‘fit into’ a particular kind of system or integrating them into this existing system. Mainstreaming is about giving some learners extra support so that they can ‘fit in’ or be integrated into the ‘normal’ classroom routine. Learners are assessed by specialists who diagnose and prescribe technical interventions, such as the placement of learners in programmes. Inclusion Inclusion is about recognising and respecting the differences among all learners and building on the similarities. Inclusion is about supporting all learners, educators and the system as a whole so that the full range of learning needs can be met. The focus is on teaching and learning actors, with the emphasis on the development of good teaching strategies that will be of benefit to all learners. MAINSTREAMING OR INCLUSION

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
