Inclusion in Physical Education: Changing the Culture
Tripp, April; Rizzo, Terry L.; Webbert, Linda
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n2 p32-36, 48 Feb 2007
Standard-driven curriculum, evidence of learning through assessment, meaningful performance outcomes, and the growing diversity of student populations are transforming how inclusion is implemented and evaluated. To provide all students with a quality instructional program that meets individual educational needs in the context of political and social justice, a culture of collaboration, community building, and reflective practice is needed. The areas of socio-educational cultural change discussed in this article are (1) program administration; (2) evaluation; (3) instruction and curriculum; (4) long-term planning; and (5) storytelling. For physical education to be truly inclusive, educators must think of it as a community of learners with many kinds of diversity. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
