Supporting the efficacy of inclusive education withing British Columbia's redesigned curriculum
With the increasing diversity of our classrooms and changes in inclusive practices and policies, many educators are feeling inadequately prepared to support their diverse learners. Social constructivism provides a theoretical framework that supports inclusive education. British Columbia’s redesigned curriculum is a competency-based curriculum that can be used as a framework for inclusive education in conjunction with Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is an inclusive framework that teachers can use to meaningfully include and provide access to the curriculum for all their learners. Engaging and meaningful professional development opportunities provide teachers with knowledge about inclusive theories and practices, affecting positive change.
