The Dinner Party

Choices, choices, choices

How is planning a dinner party similar to Universal Design for Learning?

When you plan a dinner party, there are certain things you need to plan for: providing menu options for individual choice, fostering community through the seating arrangement, and minimizing distractions by having all of the utensils, condiments, and extras ready and available for use.

Planning for the Margin

Students with special needs, struggling learners, and English language learners are often considered to be our most challenging student groups, and often we have students with these labels in our classrooms with advanced learners.

If we plan structures to support the needs of these students, then all students will be able to access the content.
