If you are interested in learning more about universal design but finding the UDL guidelines or the entire concept of learning a new model overwhelming, this book is for you!

The UDL guidelines are complex, but implementing universal design for learning should not be. If you are unsure of how to "highlight patterns and critical features" in daily practice or "maximize generalization" in lessons, this book will help. Universal Design Daily translates the UDL principles, guidelines and checkpoints for you and provides 365 easy-to-implement ideas that are appropriate for elementary and secondary classrooms.

This user-friendly guide was created to help educators learn more about universal design by exploring the practices associated with it. The book features dozens of ideas for providing multiple methods of engagement (e.g., creating personalized learning plans, using movement/brain breaks, engaging in community building), multiple methods of action and expression (e.g., providing assessment choices, encouraging doodling, introducing assistive technology), and multiple methods of representation (e.g., teaching with powerful visuals, introducing films and podcasts, creating costumes).

Universal Design Daily also provides several suggestions to help teachers and teams “set up” for universally-designed curriculum, instruction, and learning environments. One section is dedicated to preparing students and learning spaces and one is focused on UDL-related professional development.

This second edition differs from the first in that all of the teaching ideas are organized around CAST's ( Universal Design for Learning principles. There are ideas for every single guideline and checkpoint. This edition is also unique in that it includes new material including several suggestions for virtual classrooms and e-learning.

This book is designed to support any educator who may not have the time to spend hours on the web, attend a series of workshops, or read a multi-chapter book cover-to-cover in order to plan effective and appropriately challenging lessons for the students in his or her diverse classroom. With 365 ideas to explore, you can focus on just one idea per day, flip through the pages at your own pace, or read the entire book in one sitting. You can use the book as a tool for weekly inspiration or you can keep it on your desktop as a lesson-planning reference tool. No matter how you read it or use it, Universal Design Daily is sure to provide you with important universal design know-how and a wide range of creative and inspiring ideas for your diverse K-12 school or classroom.
