UDL-CCSS Video Crosswalk

UDL-CCSS Video Crosswalk | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The National Center on UDL library of UDL principles and practice videos illustrate how to apply the UDL guidelines to classroom lessons. They can also be used to demonstrate how to address specific Common Core State Standards (CCSS). View the videos and read the overviews to learn which UDL principles, UDL guidelines, and CCSS are highlighted in each video. These videos feature three CCSS in Grade 1 Mathematics and six CCSS in Grade 5 Language Arts (ELA).

Matthew Peterson - Teaching Without Words

Discover how math can be taught without words in this TED talk.  Be inspired by the fact that Matthew is dyslexic and because of it, he discovered how to teach math to diverse learners like himself.

 

"In school, the dominant way of conveying ideas is through words. Words can be great barriers to learning. Matthew Petersen shows and explains how we can learn without words.

 

Matthew Peterson, Ph.D., is Co-Founder, Senior Institute Scientist, and Chief Technical Officer of the MIND Research Institute. He is the creator of MIND's Math instructional software that teaches math to students using a unique non-language-based approach. Matthew was recently featured on Discovery Channel's "Profile Series." His focus is on developing math learning environments that initially convey sophisticated concepts visually, enabling students to gain a solid conceptual understanding of mathematics regardless of language proficiency. Matthew's cutting-edge teaching methods are currently benefiting over 300,000 students. He is the author of "MIND's Algebra Readiness" textbook, adopted in California in 2008, in addition to other technical and scientific publications."

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL–”Fantastic!”

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Don't miss this video that demonstrates how to universally design your instruction so that all learners can learn math. In this video with pre-kindergarten learners, Ms. Kungu engages her learners by designing multiple ways for them to learn about counting and ordering numbers.

She is addressing the Math CCSS Kindergarten Standard on Counting and Cardinality (Math.K.CC.4b)

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover

Dan Meyer show ways that he engages students in math and provides "multiple representations" in solving word problems at the high school level. Overall, this is a great example of how to apply UDL strategies in a subject that so many students do not do well in.  Thank you, Dan!
