Every child is different - and yet our schools have a ‘one size fits all' curriculum that everyone must follow. ‘Inclusion' is the buzzword - but is this ideal really possible? Radical solutions are needed and this book provides them.

In this highly accessible guide, Rosemary Sage:


  • unpacks the elements of diversity - personality, intelligence, styles of learning, social class, gender, race, culture, ethnicity, learning difficulties, disabilities, views and values
  • suggests practical inclusion strategies
  • offers ways to give all students more chance to talk, think, express feelings and share views


This book also includes a handy, comprehensive overview of common learning difficulties and medical conditions in children, with classroom organization tips and contact details for relevant support groups.
