This week I created a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) lesson plan. It took a much longer time to do a good lesson plan than I thought I would. It also makes me realize the lesson plans I used to turn in were “incomplete”.
Jane Strunck's insight:

Sarah reminds us that while it may take longer to lesson plan with UDL in mind, the results are worth it.  Thank you!

When teachers begin to consider implementing UDL strategies and practice in their classrooms, they often look to the familiar way of lesson or unit planning and attempt to 'retrofit' their planning process.

This is an interesting read on how using backward design works to bring in the three UDL principles.  Makes sense.
