The Guide provides important facts, insights, and guidance to help address the need for improved inclusivity for materials in the primary grades. It provides worksheets for those developing or revising texts to evaluate the inclusiveness of the teaching and learning material. The guide encourages writers and revisers to examine the frequency of representation and gender-equitable and inclusive illustrations, while also highlighting gender-equitable and inclusive language and gender-equitable and transformational roles. It recommends that individuals with various physical, cognitive, and/or sensory disabilities should be depicted in proportion to the frequency of the general population.
