Other Resources

The following is a list of other resources that were also useful throughout this implementation project. Many are titles of kids books that were helpful in reinforcing the main ideas of various lessons throughout the program, especially the lesson on the brain and disabilities. The others were consulted during the research and planning phase, the most important one being Teaching to Diversity: The Three-block Model of Universal Design for Learning, which introduces the Respecting Diversity Program.
