Understand what a region is

Traditional Lesson    Plan

UDL Lesson Plan

Scenario: At the beginning of the year, Ms. Hendrix, a fourth-grade teacher, collected information about her students’ learning preferences and learning needs. Of her 25 students, 12 prefer to learn visually, 8 prefer to learn through auditory means, and 5 prefer to learn kinesthetically. Additionally, 10 of her students are English learners (ELs) who struggle with reading and writing.

Using the table below, modify Ms. Hendrix’s traditional lesson about Regions into a lesson that incorporates the three UDL guidelines:

1. Multiple Means of Representation (what)

2. Multiple Means of Action and Expression (how)

3. Multiple Means of Engagement (why) 

Incorporate at least one technology resource in your modifications.
