The Arts and UDL


Don Glass, Anne Meyer, and David Rose


Harvard Educational Review




In this article, the authors examine the intersection of arts education and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to inform the design of better art, curricula, and UDL checkpoints. They build a case for the contribution of the arts to expert learning across the affective, recognition, and strategic neural networks and argue for making affective and reflective learning outcomes more explicit in the arts. Throughout this piece, the authors call for a vision of the arts playing an increasing role in providing engaging learning options in an integrated general curriculum.
