Teachers teach students, not disability labels. That's the philosophy behind TEACHING IN TODAY'S INCLUSIVE CLASSROOMS, which emphasizes Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to take general education teachers beyond labels (such as autism, ADHD, and others) so they can focus on the best practices appropriate for all learners. Featuring sound research-based teaching and learning strategies, this hands-on text offers pre-service teachers a practical framework for effective instruction, management, and accountability in today's diverse classrooms.

In her book Teaching to Diversity, Dr. Jennifer Katz synthesizes the research, and 16 years experience of teaching in inclusive classrooms and schools, to provide answers to several questions: How do I make inclusion work for ALL students? What are the foundational best practices of a truly inclusive learning community? How does one create such a community? The author pulls together, in an organized way, a three-block model of universal design for learning (UDL) and suggests a step-by-step approach for implementing it. This framework includes: Block One, Social and Emotional Learning: details ways to build compassionate learning communities (K-12) in which all students feel safe and valued, and develop a positive self-concept, sense of belonging, and respect for diverse others. Block Two, Inclusive Instructional Practice: includes a framework for planning units from K-12, and explains instructional and management practices for teaching, assessing, grading, and reporting in UDL Classrooms. Block Three, Systems and Structures: suggests strategies for creating inclusive learning communities, and explores ways in which resource teachers, student services personnel, and school administrators can support and create socially and academically inclusive schools and classrooms. The three-block model of UDL can empower educators with the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to teach diverse learners in the same classroom--including those who have previously been excluded. Ultimately, it is about creating classrooms and schools that heal by teaching to the heart, mind, and spirit of every student.

Ideal for Introduction to Special Education/Introduction to Exceptionalities courses, this supplementary text provides strategies pre-service and in-service teachers can use to apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to their lesson planning. UDL lesson planning considers “up front” potential barriers that could limit access to instruction for some learners and helps teachers brainstorm possible solutions before lessons begin. The lessons included in this text are meant as a starting point for general education teachers who have students with special needs in their classrooms and can be adapted for K-12 learners with a wide range of challenges. Metcalf provides one lesson plan at the elementary school level and one at the secondary level for each area of exceptionality.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can positively address the dynamic learning needs of diversified student populations. Using applied classroom scholarship, this book showcases UDL-based projects, across diverse majors, conducted by instructors at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Each one contains a personalized introductory story, an analysis of the learning needs of their students and what faculty did to address those needs, the specifics of the projects developed, and reflections on lessons learned. The book provides a summary of higher education, noting that its origins were based on exclusion and elitism, affecting both those who could and could not access learning. What this disparity in education looks like in recent times is then linked to an explanation of Universal Design, and specifically Universal Design for Learning and a discussion of public policy. It traces the difficult journey that teachers, families and legislators have undertaken to realize equitable educational access for children with disabilities, and what led to the eventual adoption of principles associated with Universal Design, and ultimately UDL. Chapters describe the personal struggle that instructors underwent as they grappled with the difference between UDL and "good teaching", the grounding of content in the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation (ADDIE) Model and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning framework, and how the cross-disciplinary UDL research project was structured and implemented. The final chapter provides "pearls of wisdom" for those seeking to infuse UDL principles into their own courses and to more effectively teach all students in higher education.
