Making the Most of Universal Design for Learning
Hunt, Jessica H.; Andreasen, Janet B.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v17 n3 p166-172 Oct 2011
Implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles can provide solutions for general educators in inclusive mathematics environments. Any lesson can be planned to provide learning experiences appropriate for meeting diverse learning needs. This article explores an example of both how to approach a topic in middle school mathematics and include essential UDL specifications using relevant technology. First, UDL is defined, and specific characteristics of the methodology are described. Next, the authors look at an Illuminations lesson and illustrate how UDL principles and technology can be infused into rich mathematical lesson plans to heighten learning experiences for all students. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
