      Alesia-

      Allow them to create their own assignments. Offering this choice is an important principle from the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, which helps all students, regardless of variability, succeed in the classroom. When students are allowed to create their own outcomes, aligned to the standards, their engagement increases and it allows them to be creative, think critically, and collaborate. I wrote a blog about what UDL looks like in the classroom. Check it out: http://katienovakudl.com/what-does-udl-look-like/

      Best,
