Acknowledging Universals

  • Supports are built into every lesson, not
    because there are strugglers in the
    class, but because at any point in time,
    any student may struggle.
  • Challenges are built into every lesson,
    not because there are gifted students in
    the class, but because at any point in
    time, any student may choose to share
    his/her gifts.
