In the past I myself embraced what Fountas and Pinnel called “a balanced literacy approach.” Under this model classroom reading would be made up of the following components:
independent reading (at the student’s independent reading level)guided reading of a whole-group text (at median instructional reading level for class)teacher read aloud (slightly above median instructional level).
The common core call for increased text complexity seems to fit well with the “guided reading” portion of the block.
Into the Book focuses on eight reading comprehension strategies for grades 1-4. Kids area has interactive activities for each strategy, teacher area features teacher guides, lesson plans, posters, video and audio clips, downloads, and more.
A review of some select apps with descriptions and potential use in supporting the principles of UDL in instruction and student learning.
"Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides a framework for course structure, individualized instruction, assessment, and academic engagement. Universal Design for Learning has the potential to maximize learning opportunities for all.

Honesty is a character trait that is a gift to the world to truly show people who you are. Being honest is not only something we learn as a child, but something we need to remind ourselves to be as adults. When you are honest with yourself and those around you, you create a relationship built on trust. You do not show a false sense of who you are and therefore allow people to get to know the real you.
We all know what it feels like to be lied to, or to think you know someone only to find out that they person they have been portraying was not truly them. And chances are when someone is not honest to you, you have a hard time seeing them in the same light you saw them in before. So be yourself and make it a point to always express honesty in your daily life. It will allow you to live a true, free, and happy life with people around you who are the same.

"UDL asks the instructor to identify the key goal(s) and objectives of a course or an assignment and then provide multiple and flexible methods of presentation, expression, and engagement. This flexibility does not mean diminishing the intellectual rigor of the course or assignment. Instead, it means recognizing that a learning goal can be accomplished through a host of means."
