Developed in collaboration with nationally recognized researchers and education experts, the Center’s resources about evidence-based instructional and intervention practices—Modules, Case Study Units, Activities, and others (including a number of Web-based tools)—are specifically created for use in college instruction, professional development activities, and independent learning opportunities for practicing educators.
- Differentiated Instruction Modules
- Differentiated Instruction: Maximizing the Learning of All Students: This Module discusses the importance of differentiating three aspects of instruction: content, process (instructional methods), and product (assessment). It also explores the student traits—readiness level, interest, and learning profile—that influence learning.
- Universal Design for Learning: Creating a Learning Environment that Challenges and Engages All Students: This Module examines the three principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and discusses how to apply these principles to the four curricular components (i.e., goals, instructional materials, instructional methods, and assessments).
- Response to intervention
- RTI (Part 3): Reading Instruction: This Module illustrates different research-based reading strategies that may be used with the Response-to-Intervention model to improve reading skills.
- RTI (Part 5): A Closer Look at Tier 3: This Module describes which students will receive Tier 3 intervention (i.e., special education services), components of Tier 3 reading interventions, and students' response to this individualized intervention. This module also explores parent involvement and issues related to English language learners.
