Happy 2014 to all of you. In many ways, 2013 was an exciting year for those of us invested in a more inclusive world. In Illinois, we made huge strides in closing institutions; nationally, organizations like Think College and SWIFT gained traction and recognition; and guidelines for extracurricular inclusion were clarified by the U.S. Department of Education.
I am equally excited about 2014, not only because I am hoping for even bigger human and civil rights victories, but also because I get to unveil two new weekly features on my blog. The first you will be seeing today and on every Wednesday of the year. I will be sharing a photo related to inclusion, diversity, curricular adaptations, or community every week. The second feature is designed to provide free resources to all of you. At the end of each week, I will share a “Flashback Friday” post featuring an idea, tip, or reflection from one of my books, articles, or videos. One week I might share a checklist or bulleted list and another it might be a specific recommendation for differentiating instruction.
I hope you enjoy the new additions!
