Post for the week of August 5, 2013
Do you know what UDL (Universal Design for Learning) is? Have you been trained a bit? Have you heard of it but are not sure exactly what it would look like in your classroom? To see the chart below, see this site. The chart is the general organizing structure of the concepts of UDL.
Recently, I have seen two sites that have helped me a lot with UDL.
This site has the above graphic with added examples for teachers. For example, if the issue is making vocabulary more defined for students, this site suggests highlighting terms. This is an easy change a teacher could make.
And this site provides even more: for each of the checkpoints, it suggests resources, examples, and research to support the idea.
Enjoy these great UDL tools!
