So what happens when you have a student who doesn't do all the assigned reading? Here are my thoughts from a UDL perspective. And reflecting on that time I didn't read Madame Bovary before writing an essay on it…
I thought I understood how to use (and teach) social media. But I was mistaken. From talking with my students, I learned that social media has fundamental effects on student writing habits that I couldn't have anticipated. Unlike me, my students already knew how best to use online tools to improve their classroom writing.
It's hard keeping up with a website like this. So I threw together a quick post with some UDL Resources that will hopefully reach a more central page. At some point. When I find more time.
