Transcript of UDL and Differentiation

Meeting students at their current level of readiness
Differences in culture, socioeconomic status, and family structure can have a strong affect on a child's level of learning readiness.
Children master different skills at different ages
Explore their learning environment and tap into the readiness skills they have developed
Teaching strategies must focus on students and their differences and cater to their specific needs.(Grove, 2012, para.3).
Planning instruction around individual needs
Students' individual needs can vary greatly within the same general education classroom, and part of this is due to the inclusion of more students with disabilities within the general education classroom.

Teachers must also allow a variety of assignments, or ways for students to demonstrate knowledge.
Presenting New Information
Flexible grouping
Tiered Lessons
Give students options of ways of learning, presenting information learned.
Information can be used in the form of discussion, audio files, video, Smartboard, question/answers.
: What the students learn
: Activities used to assist the learning
: Demonstration of learning
The methods you use should be based on the student's needs:
: Student’s academic standing
Learning profile
: How the student learns

Strategies to engage and motivate students
