Children’s Literature + DI + UDL + Mathematics = Success for Students with Disabilities


This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher series was written by Drs. Mari Caballero, Marj Bock, and Catherine Ayantoye from Emporia State University. Their article describes the development and implementation of a mathematics lesson for an inclusive 3rd grade classroom. The 3rd grade teacher and the special education teacher collaborated to create this lesson. The lesson used a children’s literature book, direct instruction (DI) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to meet the needs of all students in the 3rd grade classroom, including three students with special needs whose IEPs contained mathematics goals and objectives. The article includes a discussion of what went well when this lesson was implemented. It concludes with a set of helpful tips for teachers who wish to create similar mathematics lessons.
