Book #2 - "The Role of the Resource Teacher in the Three Block Model of UDL" is done!
...at least, the first draft is :)
This book discusses the ways in which the role of the RT changes in a universally designed, inclusive school system, and current policy across Canada in this regard. It lays out the skills and knowledge necessary for RT's to support the implementation of the Three Block Model, including consultation skills, collaborative practice, neurodevelopmental and behavioral assessment, the designing of IEP's, and how to include students with significant disabilities in a UDL classroom. Like the first book, this is not just a theoretical discussion - it is a professional development book intended to be practical. The book uses case studies, work and assessment samples, and video clips to teach resource teachers how to conduct cognitive and behavioral assessments, build learning profiles and design IEP's in new ways that truly support social and academic inclusion. Look for it in 2013!
