Product description

Clearly written and well organized, this book shows how to apply the principles of universal design for learning (UDL) across all subject areas and grade levels. The editors and contributors describe practical ways to develop classroom goals, assessments, materials, and methods that use UDL to meet the needs of all learners. Specific teaching ideas are presented for reading, writing, science, mathematics, history, and the arts, including detailed examples and troubleshooting tips. Particular attention is given to how UDL can inform effective, innovative uses of technology in the inclusive classroom.

The book provides a succinct explanation of UDL as a framework for curriculum and instruction, plus ideas for utilizing it in different content areas. An advantage of this book is its flexibility - educators can read it straight through or select specific chapters that meet their needs. This is a very readable source of essential information on UDL that will be useful for both classroom teachers and district-level personnel.' - George Van Horn, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation, Indiana, USA 'One of the most significant advances in education in the last 50 years has been the emergence of UDL. This book will undoubtedly become the source for teachers who want to know how to successfully integrate UDL into their instruction. It describes ways to dramatically transform learning for all students by bringing UDL principles into every aspect of the instructional process. Teachers, administrators, and teacher educators are sure to treasure this book.' - Donald D. Deshler, University of Kansas, USA
