The Virtual History Museum: A Universally Designed Approach to Social Studies Instruction
Bouck, Emily C.; Courtad, Carrie Anna; Heutsche, Anne; Okolo, Cynthia M.; Englert, Carol Sue
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v42 n2 p14-20 Nov-Dec 2009
In contrast to other school subjects, social studies has not received adequate attention in the education of students with disabilities, although it is an important domain of study for all students. In this article, the authors describe how teachers can use Web-based tools, such as the Virtual History Museum (VHM), to complement their instruction. They explain how using VHM integrates the principles and tenets of universal design for learning, and responds to student interest and needs. They also discuss how it can help teachers improve social studies curriculum for all students. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
