Last week, I shared some of my learning about Universal Design for Learning in my post. This week, I got the chance to delve into some of the UDL resources offered by the CAST organization at cast.org . (In order to access the free content, you will need to create a free account…)
First, I want to reiterate that creating lessons that reach every student, and help them each move forward in learning is an extremely daunting task. Luckily, CAST has created several tools to help link educators together and make the hard work of teaching a little more accessible. For instance, within the CAST website, there are links to:
- UDL sample lessons,
- the UDL lesson builder,
- a UDL teacher community,
- the UDL E-Book Builder,
- the UDL studio,
- and more!
Going through these resources this week gave me a positive sense that other teachers are out there seeking the best resources for their students.
This week I even gave the Lesson Builder and the BookBuilder a try. Feel free to check them out!
