REVAMPING TEACHER EDUCATION: CURRICULUM IN THE CONTEXT OF INCLUSIVE
EDUCATION

Dr. Satveer. S. Barwal & Seema Sharma

 

 

ABSTRACT

Inclusion in education involves the process of increasing the participation of students in and reducing their exclusion from the cultures, curricula and communities of local schools. It involves restructuring the cultures, policies and practices in schools so that they respond to the diversity of students in their locality. Inclusion is a dynamic process that is constantly evolving as it accommodates all children regardless of their physical, intellectual, social, emotional, linguistic or other conditions and these challenges have to be met by creating the child centred pedagogy capable of successfully educating all children. For empowering the pupil teachers, restructuring the curriculum of teacher education will be the stepping stone for inclusive education. Under this context the present paper attempts to establish a framework for the knowledge, understanding and skills required by teachers to support and ensure educational inclusion.
