This course is appropriate for any K-12 educator with ELL students in his or her classes.
This facilitated online course is one of three mini-courses on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and English Language Learners (ELL). This course has been designed to align with the “Prepare” phase in the UDL implementation process. This phase is typically characterized by development of a strategic goal and plan of action for UDL implementation.
In this course, participants will:
- Develop a personal learning plan with clear goals and measurable outcomes focused on language lesson planning using UDL.
- Apply the UDL Principles to case-based examples related to second language learning (L2).
- Apply UDL to a lesson and reflect on its effectiveness in addressing the language-learning needs of students who are ELL. Reflection will include thinking about how UDL design benefits ELLs in learning English as a second language (L2).
