Dr. Jennifer Katz new book Teaching to Diversity: The Three-Block Model of Universal Design for Learning
From the Book: Foreword by Faye Brownlie
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, the key pieces of what she learned and implemented from exploring and using universal design for learning (UDL) in her classrooms. Katz describes a three-block model of universal design and suggests a step-by-step approach to implementing it in the classroom.
