December Focus: Let's get connected
What does this look like in practice.
How does this relate to the teachers rubric or UDL standards?
I-A-3 Well-Structured Lessons
Adapts as needed and implements standards-based units comprised of well-structured lessons with challenging tasks and measurable outcomes, appropriate student engagement strategies, pacing, sequence, resources, and grouping; purposeful questioning; and strategic use of technology and digital media; such that students are able to learn knowledge and skills defined in state standards/local curricula.
UDL Guidelines: Engagement; Provide Options for sustaining effort and persistence
8.1 Heighten Salience of Goals and Objectives
Emerging: Build in reminders of both goals and their value. For example, write standards on the board and or at the top of assessments and projects.
Progressing toward expert: When given the learning standard, have students create personal goals for how they will learn the content, express the content, and challenge themselves
throughout the process.
If you are going to design a UDL lesson, the very first thing you need to focus on is having a clear goal aligned to state standards.
