Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 25, 2013 1:05 PM

The author offers suggestions on how you can use technology and the arts to help learners understand and master 2-Dimensional shapes, a Common Core focus in geometry for K to Grade 6.

 

"These arts and technology based activities could be used for your multiple means of engagement, representation, or expression, depending on where/how they are used throughout a unit. Many can be used as whole-class activities, continued small-group practice, or even for assessment purposes following a sequence of lessons. These fit Universal Design for Learning nicely when considering geometry goals because there are multiple ways for learners to absorb and process information as well as convey their understanding. HOW students explore the concepts to be mastered is the key- not just giving them the WHAT."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 31, 2013 10:38 AM

Matt Bergman shares some excellent tools, strategies and steps in creating meaning and interaction in reading assignments. Discover how you can universally design your reading lessons this year. Here are a few highlights of those steps:

 

> Step 1: Have a central location to place all of your supports in one easy-to-find place. LiveBinders is a great way of helping keep everything organized and together!

> Step 2: Provide multiple ways of reading the assignment (aka Multiple Means of Representation). Give students the option of using paper, PDF's, and audio copies of text. Audacity and AudioBoo are great for producing audio!

> Step 3: Provide vocabulary supports! Use Quizlet to pre-teach vocabulary and provide a way for students to review terms when they are confused or need to study. Provide vocabulary supports for words students don't know like using Visuwords or Shahi.

> Step 4: Engage Students Differently to Find Meaning: use Read-Write-Think's Venn Diagram Maker

> Step 5: Show What You Know: use Padlet as a way for students to answer the essential question of the lesson.
