Revisiting the Introductory Challenge


Remember the two airport terminals? The point was accessibility, and the terminals stood for classrooms! Hopefully, it made you think. The webinar, overview, and activities then further explained UDL. Now it’s time to think some more and create your own UDL “cheat-sheet.”

Use the form below to do that. List five ideas for changing materials to make them more accessible. Put your ideas in the beige column. Think of things that you’d actually like to try with students. Then, in the blue column, think of five different ways students might show you what they’ve learned. Finally, in the green column, list five ideas for using students’ their interests and prior experiences in lessons.
