Dr. Amy Heineke publishes book with international leader in curriculum design
Dr. Amy Heineke has partnered with curricular design expert Jay McTighe to publish Using Understanding by Design in the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classroom. Building upon the widely used Understanding by Design framework, this text adds a “language lens” to plan instruction for students who speak languages other than English and students labeled as English learners. By integrating culturally and linguistically responsive practice throughout the three stages of instructional design, the framework aims to provide students equitable access to high-quality, disciplinary curriculum that prioritizes language development. The book is written for current and future practitioners spanning disciplines, including teachers and other stakeholders who care and contribute to curriculum and instruction for the increasingly diverse populations of students in classrooms and communities around the world. It is now available for pre-order on the ASCD website: https://goo.gl/wXzEY7.
