Succeeding in the inclusive classroom; K-12 lesson plans using universal design for learning.

Metcalf, Deborah J.

Metcalf, an intervention specialist who works in partnership with schools in North Carolina and as a teacher-in-residence in curriculum and instruction at East Carolina U., offers 10 lesson plans for pre-service and in-service K-12 general education teachers who have students with special needs in their classrooms. The lesson plans apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning in planning--multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement--and integrate them with elements of traditional lesson plans. They focus on the theme of the Olympics, consist of one lesson each for elementary and secondary levels, and correlate with the ten disability areas in Richard Gargiulo's Special Education in Contemporary Society: intellectual, learning, physical, health, and related low-incidence disabilities; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; emotional, behavioral, and speech and language disorders; autism spectrum disorders; hearing and visual impairments; and gifted and talented individuals.
