Hi! My name is Paula Kluth. I am a researcher, consultant, and presenter interested in differentiating instruction, UDL (Universal Design for Learning), active learning, and inclusive schooling. I have worked as a special education teacher, an inclusion facilitator, and as a professor of education (most recently at Syracuse University).

I have written more than 15 books on inclusive education, four of which are focused on differentiated instruction and Universal Design for Learning. They include From Tutor Scripts to Talking Sticks, and From Text Maps to Memory Caps, Universal Design Daily, and Joyful Learning. Want more information on my other titles? Just click over to the Books and Products page of this site. to see all of Paula’s publications.

In addition to writing this site and blogging on my professional website, I am active on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, and Twitter.


This site is a collection of contains nearly 800 ideas to help educators add interest, relevance, fun, and novelty to classroom instruction. Specifically, I compiled these materials to support teachers in diverse classrooms who want to meet the needs of students with a wide range of needs, interests, challenges, and strengths, including learners with disabilities and unique learning profiles. It’s my hope that this page makes the work of teaching and including all students easier and more enjoyable.

Although I have written several books for teachers, I realize that sometimes there isn’t time to consult a book. In addition, virtual resources are a bit easier to share.
