Artefact analysis assessment
Word limit: 1500
Weighting: 30% (Part A: 10%, Part B: 20%)
Within each state and territory in Australia inclusive teaching is promoted and a statutory entitlement for all children. Your role as a primary school teacher is to teach children with diverse needs: some children may be undergoing assessment of an aIDitional need (also referred to as a special need or a disability), some may have a diagnosis, and some may never receive a diagnosis but have traits which suggest they have an aIDitional need. Within this assignment, you will consider how inclusive principles are applied by analysing a case study related to a child with an aIDitional need and then adapting an existing lesson in order to meet the needs of that child.
Unit learning outcomes
This task is assessing your ability to demonstrate that you meet the criteria for the following unit learning outcomes:
2. Analyze the range of aIDitional needs that impact on children, adolescence and their families
3. Critically evaluate policies, practices and legislation in relation to diversity, equity and inclusion
4. Compare and evaluate, teaching and pedagogical approaches for diversity, equity and inclusion
5. Demonstrate an understanding of strategies for diversity, equity and inclusion through a community of practice perspective.
Part A: Case analysis (500 words)
Amara came to Australia as a refugee when she was three. She did not have access to medical interventions when she was a baby and, as a result of disease in early childhood, she now has impaired vision. Amara is five and starts school next week. She loves music.
Within your analysis you will need to:
Identify and describe the particular aIDitional needs of the child in the case
Describe the impact these needs are likely to have on the childs education
Evaluate any policies, practices and legislation that impact on the childs case.
Part B: Amended lesson rationale (1000 words)
The focus of this section of the assignment is to amend an existing lesson in order to meet the aIDitional need from Part A.
Select a lesson plan (Please see the end of this document I have the lesson plan attached)
When selecting an appropriate lesson, make sure that it will be impacted by the aIDitional need in your selected case. For example, a child with a physical disability may not have any trouble participating in a classroom-based activity but will struggle with a more active outdoor task.
Think about how you would adapt the lesson in order to meet the specific aIDitional needs of the child in the case study. Then write a 1000 word rationale to justify your changes. This rationale must include:
the age of the child and Australian Curriculum level you are planning for
a description of the specific adaptations you have made to the lesson
an explanation for how these adaptations support the childs learning
an evaluation of the pedagogical approaches that underpin these adaptations and why they are appropriate in meeting the aIDitional needs of the child while also continuing to serve the needs of the other children in the class.
a description for how you have incorporated a community of practice perspective into the lesson
a conclusion that reflects on the original analysis from Part A.
You must justify your response and approaches within both parts of this assignment by making links to published academic sources, policy and legislation, appropriately cited in APA style.
Remember that as well as meeting the specific aIDitional needs of the identified child, your amended plan must also be appropriate for all children in the stated age group.
Your artefact analysis must be compiled as a single Word document, with both sections clearly delineated. Third person voice should be used for both sections.
Your original lesson plan must be included as an appendix within the submission. All resources referred to in your assignment must be included in a reference list, appropriately formatted in APA style. Neither the lesson plan or reference list will be included within the word count for the assignment.
