Transcripts can be found via our website, humanrestorationproject.org.


In today's conversation we're joined by Tesha Fritzgerald,. Tesha is an urban education expert who currently serves as a district level leader in an urban school district in Ohio. She is a Martha Holding Jennings Foundation Scholar who has a passion for UDL and culturally responsive teaching, which has led her to publishing her recent book, Antiracism and Universal Design for Learning: Building Expressways to Success.


I invited Tesha on to talk about pairing UDL and antiracist teaching, with a specific focus on:

  • Demanding excellence in progressive, human-centered classrooms.
  • Clarifying what UDL actually is.
  • Clarifying how UDL and antiracism can coexist, when UDL has been critiqued for upholding a traditionalist lens.
  • And actions we can take to build anti-racist, UDL-driven classrooms.
