Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is the best way to teach all students effectively and break down barriers to learning—but how can busy teachers get started with UDL right now? Find the answers in the second edition of this bestselling, teacher-trusted primer, created by internationally recognized UDL expert Loui Lord Nelson.


Thoroughly updated to reflect new research and developments in the field of UDL, this book gives K–12 teachers a reader-friendly UDL introduction and a practical framework for implementation, with guidelines and checkpoints for designing effective, barrier-free lesson plans and learning environments. You’ll learn how to use the three core principles of UDL—Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression—to present information in multiple ways and ensure access for all learners. Throughout the book, detailed examples, stories, illustrations, teacher reflections, and activities reinforce UDL principles and help you put them into practice in both virtual and in-person settings.


Written in first person, like a face-to-face talk with a passionate educator, this research-based book will guide you in designing equitable, inclusive, and culturally responsive learning environments that meet the needs of diverse learners. An essential UDL introduction for both preservice and inservice educators!


WHAT’S NEW:

  • Key insights from the latest neuroscience research
  • Useful stories and practical tips from teachers implementing UDL
  • Technology bytes: timely tips and ideas on how to enhance online learning with UDL
  • Expert guidance on current topics, including culturally responsive teaching, urban education, and a focus on the expert learner
  • “Ponder this” prompts throughout the book to help readers consider new ideas and discover additional resources
  • End-of-chapter “check-ins” that help readers apply what they’ve learned
