Product Description

Review

The three-block model of universal desing 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 - both socially and academically. Plus, while the themes are universal, Katz draws on Canadian experience, making the policy context more recognizable to educators in Canada.
 -  John VanWalleghem, PhD, Adjust Professor, Univeristy of Manitoba


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!
- Jennifer McGowe, Teacher, 7 Oaks School Division


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.
- Josh Diduke, K-8 Resource Teacher, Ste. Anne Elementary

This book provides both a rationale and a toolkit for planning to address the needs of the full spectrum of students in our classrooms. Lessons and strategies are provided to support social/emotional learning, strategies for year, unit and lesson planning are provided. The final section focuses on school-anddivision-wide supports. The author pulls together a variety of educational approaches (multiple intelligences, learning by design, and others) in a way that can work well and be adapted for various classes and grade levels.

I can simply say this is another dangerous fad (UDL) to hit public education.

This fad is the latest in the war against individuals striving to work above and beyond complacent classmates. Progressive/Communist/Socialist educators of the past, Dewey, Vygotsky, and even though he wasn't an educator, Karl Marx, would be proud to see their dangerous vision becoming reality.

This all sounds good on paper, but deeper, detailed research on this fad will reveal more than the average teacher or principal can comprehend. Can educators read between the lines to realize what this is really about?
