Culturally Responsive Design for English Learners
The UDL Approach
by Patti Kelly Ralabate and Loui Lord Nelson
Culturally Responsive Design for English Learners uses UDL, which addresses the innate brain-based differences of learners, and CRT, a pedagogy that responds to learners’ cultural differences, to design culturally responsive instruction that’s inclusive of all learners. These frameworks are also brought together to specifically address the learning needs faced by English Learners (ELs).
In this essential new resource, the authors provide scenarios, reflection questions, and classroom-based exercises to support responsive instruction. Learn to design and craft goals, methods, materials, and assessments that help ELs optimize their educational experience.
