Traditional methods of curriculum delivery and instruction fall far short for many students in our classrooms. Lecture and textbook based, teacher-centric instructional methods present barriers to learning. Worksheets and other print-based methods students currently use to demonstrate what they know, also obstruct independent, successful learning. New strategies exist which incorporate "Toolbelt Theory" and Universal Design for Learning principles. Bring your innovative ideas which will change learned helplessness and passivity into engaged learning for all students, including struggling learners as we create a resource for all educators.
