Using UDL to Teach to the Edges of your Classroom – A UDL Planning Session (Part 2)
February 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this session, we will be taking a look at how to increase the opportunity for learning in our lessons based on what you know about your students, the curriculum and the relationship between the two. We will observe in classrooms, and discuss how our understanding of learner variability can impact the amount of choice and independence incorporated into a single lesson or unit. Student engagement increases dramatically when given choice about how they will learn and what they will learn, combined with clear goals and expectations and meaningful and challenging content..
Participants will leave with:
- Examples of lessons and units that went through the process of better addressing learner variability and choice
- Time in classrooms to observe UDL in practice
- Understanding how barrier free goals impact your planning and student access to your lesson objectives
- Time to reflect on your own lessons and/or units and get feedback
***This workshop is part of a Professional Learning Cohort (PLC). You had to have attended Part 1 in order to attend this part 2 session.
