Models of Inclusive Curriculum
Inclusive Curriculum is designed for all types of student learners. (Children's paintings image by Pink Lion from

Inclusive Curriculum is an educational approach that blends and unifies the needs, learning styles and cultural backgrounds of all students. Inclusive Curriculum is very often linked to special education policies and practices, but it can be implemented with other student populations as well. An Inclusive Curriculum is regarded as a balanced, equitable and globally-oriented program that is adaptable according to circumstances.

Healthy Living in Two Worlds Project

An Inclusive Curriculum Model called Healthy Living in Two Worlds Project was developed by a social work student at the University of Hawaii. The premise of the project was to guide urban Native American youth, ages 9 to 13, to more healthful living styles and practices by acknowledging and valuing their Native American heritage. The Healthy Living in Two Worlds Inclusive Curriculum builds upon precepts that were targeted in prior Inclusive Curriculum pilot programs, the Pathways and the FACETS curriculum.

Alma for Ada

The Alma for Ada Inclusive Curriculum Model focuses on the achievements and contributions of Latin Americans in the southwestern United States. The Alma Curriculum and Teacher Training Project was enacted in 1996, and there are instructional units for students in early childhood programs through twelfth grade. All instructional units coincide with the Denver Public Schools Academic Content Standards for all core subject areas. Student learning objectives are met through vocabulary units, educational activities and test assessments. Topics covered include Latin Americans in geographic exploration, professional careers and family life.

The Circle of Inclusion

The Circle of Inclusion Collaborative Teaching Model is a joint venture between the regular education teachers and the special education teachers for the optimal benefit of the students. Teachers may opt to co-teach: One teacher can work with the accelerated learners while the other can work with the learning-challenged students. In this curriculum scenario, all students are receiving instruction tailored to their ability levels. The purpose of this arrangement is for special needs students and regular education students to appreciate and respect each other's academic strengths and challenges.
