Purpose: The Implementing New Curricular Learning with Universally Designed Experiences (INCLUDE) Phase II project is designed to ensure all students in the general education classroom, including those with mild to moderate disabilities, struggling students and English language learners, are provided the necessary accommodations in the general mathematics classroom that will support their achievement of the Core Curriculum Content Standards. The basis for the INCLUDE grant is to improve academic achievement in mathematics by using educational technology effectively. The INCLUDE grant project builds or expands a general education math classroom that must include students with mild to moderate disabilities in each classroom and if applicable, students that are English language learners. The INCLUDE Phase II project begins the implementation of the principles and strategies learned in Phase I. The goals are to provide inclusive classroom designs and improve mathematics content delivery, and improve the effective integration of technology in the math curriculum. In Phase II, four teachers from the two next consecutive upper grade levels, 6, 7 or 8 will be provided with the same opportunities as the year-one teachers to prepare a classroom using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework.
