Setting clear goals and designing plans to achieve those goals is important to every classroom and each student’s success. Creating and customizing lesson plans using the Universal Design for Learning, or UDL, builder is a great way to include every learner and every learning style.
It is important to realize that a UDL lesson plan is not meant for use as an everyday lesson plan because it addresses the activities, assessments, and accommodations you will need in order to meet specific objectives. A UDL lesson plan may take 4-5 days to complete depending on the complexity of the activities. The plan includes areas such as unit and lesson goals, guided and independent practice, formative and summative assessment, as well as materials used and accommodations needed. The anticipatory set allows the opportunity for students to make connections between prior knowledge and new information. UDL lesson planning is a wonderful way to provide teachers with the framework to meet every student’s diverse learning needs.You can find my UDL plan on my wiki by following this link:
