Including all students in the general education curriculum

Written Material

An article specifically related to the concept of 'curriculum' as seen in most western countries. The authors argue that the way we think about 'curriculum' needs to change; from seeing it as a standardised, sequenced set of "pieces of knowledge" that children must learn in order to be successful, to seeing the curriculum as a vehicle for students to learn how to learn, understand, appreciate, adapt to and use (to the best of their ability) what is available in the world around them. A teacher uses the curriculum to challenge every student to achieve as much as possible. This is part of a general educational reform strategy, and is also away to think about including and to include students with disabilities in regular classes as learners and achievers.
