Planning with your students in mind, means knowing your students and your class. Developing a class profile – where you consider the strengths, stretches and make up of the class is a great place to start. Related to the class profile might be individual student profiles. Teachers might create individual student profiles or even have students create their own profiles as a self-assessment opportunity. I love Shelley Moore’s templates for class and student profiles available here: https://blogsomemoore.com/shout-outs/templates/
Dr. Moore has a website with associated inclusion resources as part of her ‘Five-Moore Minutes’ Project. Visit FiveMooreMinutes.com. You’ll find the videos, podcasts, transcripts and associated forms/resources for several seasons.
Below is the video that started it all… where Shelley shares an analogy of teaching as bowling to help explain inclusion and the Universal Design for Learning. For the full series and, hopefully, new videos to come, follow the Five Moore Minutes Youtube channel.
