What's new

Guide to Behaviour and Learning - updated


The updated and revised edition of Guide to Behaviour and Learning is now available on the Inclusive Education website with practical approaches to strengthen behaviours that promote learning, and minimise behaviours that disrupt and inhibit learning.

The guide illustrates how to ensure students' strengths, interests, learning needs, and preferences are considered in the design of learning environments.

Strategies in the guide:

  • promote inclusive, culturally responsive practices
  • are learner and whānau centred
  • support schools to take a reflective, problem-solving approach
  • promote self-regulated learning behaviours

This guide is a companion resource to Teaching for positive behaviour: supporting engagement, participation and learning.

The Same Game - new resource


A new resource for years 1-3, The Same Game, is intended to help foster the curriculum principles of diversity and inclusion.

The resource comprises a big book, audio, and teacher notes, and is intended to support students to recognise and appreciate their similarities and differences.

The book is being distributed to schools, and a PDF version, audio, and teacher notes are available on Social Sciences Online.
