UDL for Reading

"Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning (reading comprehension). It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Like all language, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practice, development, and refinement." *

Not all individuals learning to read or to improve their reading skills have the same "prior knowledge, experience, attitude, language community" - and abilities. Teachers can use a variety of tools and techniques with all their students to provide options for the learners.
