UDL Now! By Katie Novak  -  SETC Book Study

If you are curious about UDL, this book study is for you!  Come explore UDL in a supportive environment with no pressure.  Join the UDL discussion and hear how other teachers and therapists are practically applying and supporting UDL principles in their classrooms and schools.  (These sessions will not be recorded to allow for open discussion and the building of a trusting learning community.)


“Katie Novak’s well-articulated know-how about how to put UDL into practice has helped many thousands of educators. However, rather than rest on that success, Katie has done what expert learners and expert teachers do: She has reflected on her own performance and asked, “What can I do better? How can I make my point clearer? What have I learned from those many practitioners I have met and worked with in the past couple of years?’ Throughout this book, you’ll find the answers to those and other questions. The result is a bigger and better book.”

~  David Rose, Co-Founder of CAST and a principal architect of the UDL framework and guidelines


“In this revised and expanded edition of the bestseller UDL Now! Katie Novak provides practical insights and savvy strategies for helping all learners meet high standards using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. Novak shows how to use the UDL Guidelines to:

·       plan lessons,

·       choose materials,

·       assess learning

·       improve instructional practice.

Novak discusses key concepts such as scaffolding, vocabulary-building, and using student feedback to inform instruction. She also provides tips on recruiting students as partners in the teaching process and engaging them in how they learn. UDL Now! is a fun and effective Monday-morning playbook for great teaching.”
