Reconsider the discipline practices of suspension and expulsion through the SWIFT framework - - preventative, positive, and policy driven.
I.Q. and other tests that purport to measure human capacity are terribly flawed. Basing a student’s whole educational career and future on a test score just seems fraught with potential harm.
UDL provides a way for us to closely investigate the design of our environment and lessons so all students are active participants in learning.
I learned that differentiation means that adults do whatever it takes to make the instruction, assessment, and environment different in some way—different in just the perfect way—for every child, so that all children can learn.
When considering the outcome of wanting all students to be active and independent contributors to society, breaking down the silos to focus on a more quality education is no longer an imaginary goal for the future.
See SWIFT in action!
