1 Universal Design for Learning: A Framework for Teaching All Learners August Wakefield, MA

2 For Online Resources and discussions: UDL Connect

3 #UDL social media CAST UDL Center AIM Center Use Twitter? Use #UDL in your tweets during the workshop! #UDLchat: 1 st & 3 rd Wednesdays of the month, 9-9:30pm ET

4 CAST 2012 Clearing the path for someone with special needs, clear the path for all.

5 Overall Workshop Goals Day 1: To learn how UDL addresses challenge of learner variability Day 2 & 3: To consider how UDL applies to lesson design To consider new resources & tools

6 30 second UDL ‘elevator’ speech to colleague What did you learn at your workshop about learning & UDL? ‘UDL is …’

7 Quadrant 1Quadrant 2 Quadrant 3Quadrant 4 Share a elevator speech

8 UDL highlights Based in neuroscience: variability & context Framework for designing lessons, presentations, activities with a clear goal & flexible, accessible means (UDL Guidelines)

9 UDL Guidelines Recognition: “what” – Multiple means representation Strategy: “how” – Multiple means of action & expression Affect: “why” – Multiple means of engagement

10 Systematic Variability: where are you with your learning now? Steven E. Peterson, Hanneke VanMier, Julie A. Fiez & Marcus E. Raichle

11 Systematic Variability: where are you with your learning now? Steven E. Peterson, Hanneke VanMier, Julie A. Fiez & Marcus E. Raichle

12 Systematic Variability: where are you with your learning now? Steven E. Peterson, Hanneke VanMier, Julie A. Fiez & Marcus E. Raichle

13 UDL – Application to Practice What do I do and how do I start?

14 “What does a UDL lesson look like?” meet Katie Novak: UDL Connect: Guidelines Read her lesson plan Choose a Guideline for focus Watch video with Guideline in mind

15 Evidence from Katie’s classroom

16 Share findings with elbow buddy Identify what you saw ‘come to life’ based on the Guideline you chose Look at Katie’s lesson plan (#2) to see how she listed the Guideline – Discuss differences and similarities

17 How do I ‘do’ UDL?

18 Start with your goal: know where you’re going CAST 2012

19 ‘Gorilla’ video Goals are essential Impacts our perception

20 Goals are difficult Many goals: CCSS, district, lesson, department Write goals clearly, all understand Consider flexible means to reach goal (UDL) Consider whether means are embedded

21 Are means embedded in the goal? Students will demonstrate their knowledge of the stages of metamorphosis. © CAST 2012

22 Are means embedded in the goal? Students will demonstrate their knowledge of stages of metamorphosis by writing in their journal. © CAST 2012

23 Reflect upon this goal: Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words What does it look like to integrate? How will content be evaluated? What will success look like (assessment)? Share, model, discuss with students.

24 Beware of secondary goals!

25 Consider Variability by using the UDL Guidelines

26 Think about a lesson: UDL Guidelines What is already present & works well? Anticipate barriers, challenges

27 Select assessment: Align to goal Formative or summative?

28 Methods & Materials Flexible and accessible to reach goal Multiple means of representation Multiple means of action and expression Multiple means of engagement CAST 2012

29 Technology can help, not required Joe’s Non-netbook

30 Some teacher favorite ‘technology’ tools : Sticky notes Colored pens Piping tube for listening to self Word Rulers with ‘space’ for reading Vimeo VoiceThread Animoto

31 Quadrant 1Quadrant 2 Quadrant 3Quadrant 4 Share tools & technology favorites! Align with a UDL Guideline. i.e.: graphic organizer… aligns with Guideline 6.4, monitor progress

32 Do your lesson:

33 UDL Reflection: What worked well: did students achieve intended goal?

34 Questions, Reflections?

35 Work on your lesson Part minutes Identify Goal. – How will you know if students reached the goal (assessment)? With partner, work on the phrasing of the goal Ie: What is the one thing to know (content, how to do) before you leave the room

36 Work time Part 2 Until 11:45am Collaborate or work independently – Lesson – Faculty Meeting – Upcoming event… Lesson planning handout, optional

37 Share highlights from your work: How did UDL inform your work or conversation?

38 Questions? Comments? Coming this afternoon!! Break out sessions: building tools & resources Coming this afternoon!! Break out sessions: building tools & resources

39 Lunch 12:00-1:00
