Universal Design for Learning guides HOW students will learn. As local districts implement the state curriculum, they make choices regarding instructional resources, materials, and methods. By focusing on multiple means of representation, multiple means of action and expression, and multiple means of engagement during district-wide, school-wide, or grade-level decision making, local teachers and administrators can collaboratively collect and/or create a wide variety of resources that classroom teachers can utilize to differentiate in their individual classrooms in order to meet the needs of ALL students regardless of whether they are gifted and talented, students with disabilities, English language learners, or the child next door.
The principles of UDL are applicable for all grade levels and all content areas; and these two 90-minute professional development sessions, along with the downloadable related materials and resources, will help educators see how they can incorporate UDL to ensure the successful implementation of the Common Core GPS.
