Daywalt took an item that children use on a daily basis and created a conflict that they would understand. The theme, as previously discussed, is successful in teaching a lesson without stating it obviously.

Carol Dweck, the author of the book entitled “Mindset”, did a great job of portraying her inquisitive thoughts throughout the book. Also, the book was informative and made me wonder about my “mindset” and my life in the future. Dweck, throughout the book, explains that mindsets start early as a child and perseveres into adulthood. She explains that this mindset can drive many aspects of our lives going from parenting and being in relationships to sports, school, and work. Most of the book which stands out to me, is the author’s encouragement to her readers, that anyone can change their mindset at any time, age, or state of mind in their life.

Inclusion is a philosophy that is heavily used in today’s society. It encourages individuals, schools, and regions to accept and give worth to everyone in spite of their differences. In line with this philosophy are the certainties that each individual has a place, diversity is appreciated, and that we can all learn from each other (Renzaglia, Karvonen, Drasgow, & Stoxen, 2003). With these beliefs in mind when working in the education system, the Universal Design for Learning framework (UDL) shows how all students can access and engage in learning, no matter how severe the disability. With UDL being a guided principle in special education, students with severe disabilities are able to access the general education curriculum, engage with regular education peers, and are regarded as respected individuals in the their schools and community.
