Wu, Xiuwen; Newman, Mark
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Assocation (New York City, Mar 24-28, 2008) (New York City, NY, Mar 24-28, 2008)
This paper discussed a study involving two groups of teacher candidates' implementations of a visual literacy curriculum in their preclinical field experience. The purpose was to explore whether the curriculum provided a viable way for them to implement Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in teaching their diverse learners, including students with disabilities and English as a second language learners. Teacher and student surveys, reflection notes, lesson plans, and artifacts in the lessons were analyzed. Findings indicated that the visual literacy curriculum promoted universal access to learning and conversely, UDL principles provided valuable guidelines for creating lessons that maximize the effectiveness of the visual literacy tools. (Contains 2 tables and 10 figures.)
