Teachers in special and regular teacher education are becoming more aware of the complex and varied challenges that emerging teachers face as they enter the diverse modern classroom. This book focuses on student diversity in the classroom and how teachers can work with this diversity to maximise the educational outcomes of their students. Examples of diversity in Australian classrooms include students who are gifted and talented, students whose first language is not English, students who are members of a minority cultural group and students who experience learning difficulties. That students in Australian classrooms display heterogeneous characteristics is a given ' even students in selective schools will demonstrate diverse interests and needs.
