Understanding curriculum planning practices that promote equity and excellence for students with disability

Gallagher, Jeanine E (2016) Understanding curriculum planning practices that promote equity and excellence for students with disability. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis analyses how primary teachers plan from the Australian Curriculum for students with disabilities as part of their curriculum planning to achieve equity and excellence for all. The researcher used an institutional ethnographic approach to create data maps that visually represented how these teachers navigated across thirty-one curriculum organising texts in their individual and classroom planning. By identifying the complexity of the process, types of texts that were most influential, and the everyday/night work of curriculum planning, leaders can strategically plan to support teachers to have high expectations for students with disabilities.

Key themes include students with disability, curriculum entitlement and practices that promote equity.
