Autumne Streeval and Harriet Armstrong, teachers from Columbus East High School in Columbus, Indiana, describe their project being displayed at the 2009 U.S. Innovative Teachers Forum.
Students were given a tic tac toe project guide that focused on the Industrial Revolution. The projects were varied to allow for differences in learning styles and to allow students to use various technologies. A strategy of universal design for learning (UDL) was used to create the project. This allowed teachers to think of differentiation as the project was being developed instead of as an afterthought. UDL gives students multiple options to learn content in creative and engaging ways.
