Resource sharing and Mathematics UDL

Blogger, Twitter, Scoop-it, Pinterest, Tumblr. Which are you following? Using? I intend to selectively share resources related to GB DSAC districts' initiatives. My twitter feed (see link to the right) will include these and other resources "as I find them".

This week's resources align to the three principals of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) the foundation for supporting robust tier 1 instruction used in many GB DSAC schools and districts.

Provide Multiple Means of Representation

Use http://www.visuwords.com/ to represent (mathematics) vocabulary. Here is an example for "equation"

Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression

Consider offering student assignment "menus"with directions such as, "Choose a variety of activities from the menu below. The activities must total at least ____ points. Place a checkmark next to each box to show which activities you will complete". Examples can be found here, https://sites.google.com/site/msbosworthsmathclass/student-choice-boards



Provide Multiple Means of Engagement 

Use the TED talks (beta) site for education. Mathematics lessons are at http://ed.ted.com/lessons?category_id=271. I recommend this engaging Ted-Ed http://ed.ted.com/lessons/michael-mitchell-a-clever-way-to-estimate-enormous-numbers on estimation using powers of 10. Make sure you follow the lesson links for assessing (Think) and extending (Dig Deeper).
