New features for the new year

Posted on January 01, 2014 in News


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!
