"In this Kappa Delta Pi Record article, Susan Trostle Brand (University of Rhode Island/Kingston), Antoinette Favazza (University of Rhode Island), and Elizabeth Dalton (TechACCESS) present ways that teachers can use Universal Design for Learning to make lessons accessible to students with a wide spectrum of learning styles and abilities:
> Multiple means of representation – Giving students options for perception, language and symbols, and comprehension"
> Multiple means for engagement – A constructivist approach can support active engagement through:
- Recruiting student interest
- Sustaining effort and persistence
> "Multiple means for action and expression – Varying physical action, expressive skills and fluency, and executive functions
> Multiple means of assessing understanding – This includes methods, formats, scope/range level, product and outcome, and feedback"
