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 courses that focus on applying UDL to instruction for ELLs and has been designed to align with the “Integrate” phase in the UDL implementation process. This phase includes application and integration of the UDL framework in teaching and learning environments with evaluation of its effectiveness.
In this course, participants will:
- Demonstrate the ability to articulate clear goals based on WIDA or the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
- Understand how to align goals and assessments and use data measured or observed from their classrooms to inform the goals, assessments, materials, and methods that are chosen- both for ELLs and non-ELLs.
- Understand how flexible materials and methods, informed by the UDL Guidelines, can help address learning variability, particularly variability driven by language and culture.
