0   — about finding diverse ways (“universal design for learning”) to foster and assess comprehension… but … it’s hard to translate this into real things.   Things like suggesting that we remind students of background knowledge, and if they don’t have it, teach it to them — that’s peachy!   But … That is so very, very far from simple.   What do you mean by “teach” — build concepts?  Do a few things with terms in what they’re learning?

Still, it’s a good outline and it puts “out there” that yes, we can and should expect comprehension, not just survival.
