Browse and select the strategies in this module below:
This activity is to help your students to understand that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and that this variety is good and that we need not be critical of people’s individual weaknesses
This strategy is to support you to give the toolkit student more positive feedback. It requires you to think positively about changes that you can make too!
This strategy can go along with Catch them out [being good]. It’s about understanding how things can be re-worded to support positive language, why this is important, and some practice for you to become a pro at flipping negatives into positives!
This strategy is to support you to identify constructive ways in which you can let out the frustration you may feel with managing students who can behave in challenging ways
Children who struggle with being impulsive, over-active or concentrating may make friends or bonds with people who are different in age to them- be it adults, older or younger children. This strategy is to get you thinking about who the social networks are for the toolkit student.
This strategy is to give you ideas about how you can build in contributions from a lot of different students with different needs so that everyone’s voice is heard and your classroom is as inclusive as it can be. It’s about promoting and modelling positive socially inclusive behaviour, and supporting children with individual differences to be an equal peer contributor
This strategy is about finding different ways for students to demonstrate their learning, it will be useful for students who struggle to complete work in the format that is usually used for the class
