This is a well-researched and immensely practical book. The authors explain complex ideas drawn from Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in easy to understand terms such as “Access, Engage, and Express.” They provide activities, conversation starters, and links to online resources. They also give you access to downloadable templates for the Learner Profile, Personal Learning Backpack, Personal Learning Plan, Class Learning Snapshot, and Class Learning Toolkit. Teachers can then customize these templates for individual learners in their classroom.
How to Personalize Learning is written for teachers at every stage of the journey. If you’re just getting started, this book can introduce you to simple tools to help you discover the learner in every child. If you’re already familiar with personalized learning, the “Delve into Deeper Learning” and “Create a Culture of Learning” sections might provide the insights you need to take your classroom to the next level.
No matter where you are on the personalized learning journey, remember that even the smallest change can have a huge impact. How to Personalize Learning will give you the insights, tools, and encouragement you need to courageously take that next step.
