About this Course

Mode: This 10-day course will be delivered in English but supported in isiXhosa and Afrikaans.

What is inclusive education and what does it mean for teachers? 

 In essence, inclusive education refers to a school system that is a reflection of society. It is essential that learners with differing abilities should be included in our classrooms. Segregation in any form is strongly discouraged and diversity is embraced. 

Teachers are tasked to deliver the curriculum at a specific pace and level, but not all learners are able to progress at the required rate. This scenario poses a challenge, and teachers often lack the skills to assist those learners with barriers to learning

This course has been designed to provide a holistic approach, ensuring you are well-versed in understanding the impact of barriers to learning from policy to practical scaffolding and differentiation. 

Lesson contents:

  • Comprehensive understanding of Barriers to learning and related policies to support Inclusive Education.
  • A global and local perspective on inclusion (including diversity)
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic barriers as well as Learning Theories
  • Introduction: Counting and Estimation
  • Mental Math Strategies
  • Number Concept Development
  • Basic Calculation Strategies
  • Problem-Solving
  • Practical component: Project-Based Assessment
  • Assessing and supporting barriers: Case studies, teacher intervention, SBST support and SIAS pathway

Additionally, the course provides a variety of interactive activities for teachers, including the use of information and communication technology (ICT) and support material, to provide the appropriate intervention for learners with barriers in learning Language. 

Additional to these lessons is an e-Book and access to EDULIS Services.

Time: 10 days face-to-face at the Cape Teaching and Leadership Institute
