This collection of case stories edited by Elizabeth Berquist showcases the practical challenges and solutions of implementing UDL in systems, states, and schools across the United States.
“Are there any more exciting stories than those of pioneers? . . .
In this timely new collection, Elizabeth Berquist has brought together some early pioneers of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) implementation. These pioneers discuss many important topics related to implementations, such as the need to build effective professional learning communities, to cultivate support among school faculty and parents, and to integrate UDL with existing initiatives.
As more and more educators take up the challenge to implement UDL, this enterprising book is an excellent place to start that journey, filled as it is with wise and hard-won lessons from these UDL pioneers.”
