Product Description

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, 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.

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    The three-block model of universal design for learning fills the gap between the theory of inclusive education and the classroom. Katz pulls critical how-to-teach ideas (e.g., multiple intelligences, differentiation, essential learning outcomes, co-teaching) into one understandable, usable package. Classroom teachers and their support teams can take these ideas directly to the job of designing and implementing instruction that works for all students ñ both socially and academically.

  2. 5 out of 5

    :

    The three-block model was a lifesaver when I taught grade 3 to a very diverse classroom. It allowed for everyone to feel successful within the classroom and targeted on building individual strengths and scaffolding challenges. Now, being a resource teacher, it has allowed me to assist others and and make learning enjoyable for all.

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    Jennifer Katz’s true gift lies in her ability to make others think and reflect on their practices. Jennifer is a true instrument of change and is definitely contributing to a much needed paradigm shift!
