CAST is pleased to announce the publication of Elevating Co-Teaching through UDL by Elizabeth Stein.
Co-teaching—the practice of having special ed and general ed teachers work together to plan and implement an inclusive curriculum—is a challenging one. It requires thoughtful planning and cooperative practices.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework for designing inclusive learning environments, offers co-teachers structure and guidance in pursuing their goal to create successful learning environments for all students.
Stein’s book addresses questions such as:
- How does UDL inform the lesson-planning process?
- What does UDL look like in the classroom?
- What role does formative assessment play?
- How do you get buy-in for the UDL approach from administrators, parents, and students themselves?
These and many other questions are answered in this must-have book for anyone interested in co-teaching!
You can read more about this title or place an order through our website at the Elevating Co-Teaching through UDL page here.
