Transcript of UDL 101

UDL is for every child—general education, special education, gifted and talented, and ELLs. UDL is not a special education initiative, but a philosophical approach for designing curriculum, shaping instruction, selecting instructional materials/technology and developing assessments that provide greater access to learning for all students.
In today’s session, you will:
Identify three components of UDL
Learn about tools to help plan for UDL
"UDL-ize" an indicator or lesson in order to serve it for dinner!
What are the three components of UDL?
Support learning by:
incorporating images
providing flexible materials
giving students choices


Share successful strategies.
There are many ways you can support a UDL classroom. You'll find yourself becoming more creative, and see students being more engaged in learning.
1. Provide Multiple Means of Representation

Support the "what" of learning by:
chunking information into small parts
adding illustrations, diagrams, and visuals
pairing written and spoken words
varying the rate and volume of speech
2. Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression:

Support the "how" of learning by:
allowing students to choose their tools
encouraging the use of technology
breaking long-term goals into short-term objectives
allowing students to interact with materials
3. Provide Multiple Means of Engagement:

Support the "why" of learning by:
using prompts, reminders, and checklists
emphasizing process and effort of meeting goals
varying activities and sources of information
inviting self-reflection
A UDL classroom often decreases the differences between students with disabilities, Highly Able Learners, students who are English Language Learners and their peers, because everyone is using the tools that they need to be successful.
