This module will examine a range of approaches to the teaching and learning of science that take account of student diversity. It will take a broad view of diversity to think critically about factors such as gender, ethnicity, (dis)ability, culture and social background and the influence these have on student interest in science. You will develop your critical analysis of relevant theories, research evidence and policy that take account of diversity and give students a ‘voice’ in the way in which they are taught. This will be related to practice that recognises the diverse backgrounds of students in your own professional context. To take this module you will normally need to be a practising teacher of science in a primary, secondary or FE context.
