UDL Strategic Network

This activity falls under the UDL strategic network because students are going to decide which poem format to use in order to express themselves.



Here is how my lesson scores on the UDL guidelines worksheet.

Modifications

In order to modify this lesson to meet UDL guidelines educators can:



  1. Allow students to choose their topic.
  2. Allow students other ways of sharing their summer vacation like a drawing with text explanation or a glogster highlighting their summer vacation.
