Inclusion is 'the right of every child to an appropriate and efficient education in his or her local mainstream school.' The implication here is that there are to be no exceptions in regards to a child's culture, gender, ethnicity, and religion, issues of disability, age or sexual orientation. An inclusive classroom is one in which learning happens in small groups with peer helping and supporting each other, it is also 'student centred with a high sense of respect and community.
Teaching English to people who are just beginning to learn English (second-language learners) can be quite a challenge, especially when the novice teacher has not studied languages herself. Teachers should be mindful that language learners have a variety of learning styles much like all students in the regular classrooms. Some students prefer writing while others prefer social interaction as a setting for learning. Visual learners need unique stimulation in the forms of pictures, drawings, and designs; whereas, kinesthetic learners need to employ body movement. For that reason, one would be advised to ask questions to determine the student's level, his preferences, and his cultural background. The correct methodology to be utilized in class depends somewhat upon the learner's and the teacher's preferences. No matter which of the following strategies you should employ to teach your new students, it is preferable to try more than a single strategy and to mix as many as needed.

Implementing routines gives students a straightforward outline to follow and works like a map showing students the appropriate behaviour that teachers want to see. And because routines are followed again and again and never change, they create total consistency for both teacher and student.

Kids are naturally curious as they inquire about their surroundings and the rest of the world. Few children refuse to admire bugs, even going to the extent of picking them up, petting them, and often trying to sneak them into the mouth for a quick flavor check. Kids wonder at sparkling rainbows, gurgling streams, fluttering birds, and flashing stars. Their curiosity grows as older siblings, friends, family, and parents inspire study and discovery. This curiosity is snuffed when this same group is too quick with explanations, thus extinguishing exploration, or with discouragement when it comes to figuring out answers through experimentation and wonder. Some of this tamping down may be a necessity in a burgeoning classroom of students or with harried, exhausted parents racing to meet urgent needs, but it is sad to watch kids slink into "Just give me the answer" mode for the sake of speedy teaching and learning.
To retain and build curious, inquisitive minds we need curious inquisitive ...

This disjuncture represents one of the major challenges being encountered in the primary and secondary education of North American Indians which have been widely reported in previous research and are well-known phenomena in the national education sector.
