Paraeducators gave teachers more time for planning. They were utilized in managing non-instructional settings such as duplicating materials, or playground
(Nevin, Villa & Thousand, 2009).
Federal Legislation was passed that provided a free and appropriate public education to all children with disabilities. Paraeducator's role evolves to become instructional (Nevin, Villa & Thousand, 2009).

One teaching a lesson while the others sit, stand, and
watch without function or assignment;
When ideas are not collaborating;

RESPONSIVE teaching,

size fits all.

Variety
(Cox, 2008)
UDL

Each area of the curriculum should provide multiple, varied, and flexible options for representation, expression, and engagement:

Principle 1: Provide multiple means of representation
Principle 2: Provide multiple means of action and expression
Principle 3: Provide multiple means of engagement
(Ralabate, 2011)
