I'm currently teaching a few small groups in our schools inclusion unit. I have a year 9 and year 11 group who have behavioural issues and a year 10 nurture group which is mainly made up of vulnerable students. So far things have been going ok all things considered, but a couple of major issues have been coming up 1) One group have shown a complete disinterest in learning about Islam, which is the 'one other religion' we study. The lesson turned into a tirade of racial abuse from a couple of students. For me, it's all the more reason to carry on (and justifies why we do RE in the first place, trying to combat this sort of thing) but I feel like I need to pull of something special just to get them to a basic level of tolerance. Any advice on how to deal with prejudice and discrimination issues with a group that comes from an area that is 95% white? 2) The nurture group have VERY diverse needs, and a few are sporadic attenders. They also have very different attainment levels from barely literate to relatively high. I'm struggling with pacing as some students work much faster and more independently than others. My first instinct is to go with differentiated worksheets, but I was hoping for some other suggestions (so that this year isn't just spent creating and teaching from sheets!) thanks in advance for any feedback!
