Diversity: An Educational Advantage online teacher support
Welcome to the Diversity—An Educational Advantage Online Teacher Support Material (TSM). This website has been developed for use by teachers.
An exciting initiative in 2009 was the production and publication of the book Building Bridges: Creating a Culture of Diversity (Download PDF). The book was written by Fethi Mansouri, Louise Jenkins, Michael Leach and Lucas Walsh. The publication has been distributed to all Victorian Secondary schools as a practical teaching and learning resource in the area of multiculturalism. The book consists of a Model of Best Practice, Teaching and Learning Resources and Community-School Engagement Models. In particular, the teaching modules aim to broaden student awareness of cultural diversity and develop a more informed understanding of Australia as a culturally diverse nation. This is an exciting development which supports Victorian secondary teachers in their work with culturally diverse student communities. A number of school principals have already written to thank Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation (CCG) for the resource and confirmed that it will become part of their curriculum development for 2010.
