Universal Design for Instruction targets the best practices of teaching for each student's learning needs. According to Scott, Shaw, and McGuire (2001), there are six principles guiding Universal Design for Instruction: 1) equitable use, 2) simple and intuitive, 3) perceptible information, 4) low physical effort, 5) a community of learners, and 6) instructional climate. This presentation seeks to educate all teachers on the benefits and ease of implementing a universal design approach in all our classrooms. Students know how they learn best. Let's give them the opportunity to become partners in the creation of a positive instructional climate! This poster presentation provides participants with sound practical strategies suitable for all teachers.
