How I Use It
I like the lesson formats, which are sorted by grade level and subject.Common Core standards. Universal Design strategies as well as mild, moderate and intense levels of support are included for teacher use. For example, when using the Reading standard for 6th grade, Integration of Knowledge and Ideas, a teacher could choose to have students compare text to a video. In addition to the resources listed above, strategies for engagement and expression are also available for teachers to implement as needed.
My Take
There is a host of strategies and resources on this website that assist teachers as they support all students. The only "con" I see, could be the price. A single teacher membership is currently $595 a year. District pricing is also available. Even though it is pricey, the value for teachers, especially new teachers, is incredible. The ability to customize professional development to any district, adds to the value.
