   Week 5 – Assignment


Creating a UDL Instructional Plan

This assignment is another opportunity to apply the principles of  universal design for learning (UDL) in the design of instruction and  assessment. In this assignment, you develop a lesson plan that  incorporates UDL and effectively leverages educational technologies in  the classroom. Specifically, using the Cast UDL Lesson Builder (2011)  website (see instructions below on how to access this website), you will  create a lesson in either English/language arts (ELA) or mathematics  that includes the components listed in the content expectations, below.  Prior instructor approval is required for those seeking to develop a  lesson pertaining to another subject area. Regardless of subject, your  lesson should align with specific grade level standards.

Create your assignment using the content and written communication  instructions below. Use the Grading Rubric to review your assignment  before submission to ensure you have met the distinguished performance  for each of the components described below. For additional assistance,  review the Week Five Instructor Guidance page and, if needed, contact  the instructor for further clarifications.

There are two parts to this assignment: Part I is an actual instructional plan and Part II is a final summary.

To prepare for Part I, you must first log onto the  CAST UDL Lesson Builder (2011) website. Create a free account. Next,  click on “Create, Save & Edit My Own UDL Lesson Plans” and begin  constructing single lesson for a specific grade level focusing on either  reading/language arts or math only. Each respective portion of the plan  is inserted by selecting “Edit” and are detailed below in the Part I  Content Expectations. For more information on each part of the lesson  plan, click on the “More Information” button located in the lesson plan  builder.

Refer to:
Week 5 Assignment Template Part 2
