10 things I hate about 'Inclusion' in physical education

Justin A. Haegele, Wesley J. Wilson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we focus on the term ‘inclusion’ and how its usage in physical education contexts helps to support a pedagogical space that inherently excludes and marginalizes disabled students. We utilized features from a romantic comedy movie, 10 Things I Hate about You, to provide a playful narration of ‘inclusion’ and challenge the way in which the term is used in physical education. We conclude as our movie of choice does, with exposing our affection for inclusion when conceptualized as a subjective experience. Implications for this understanding of inclusion, that are clear departures of challenges we expose throughout this chapter, are then shared.
