Thursday Think: Planning Tools/Templates and Universal Design for Learning
Just wanted to share a couple of planning tools/templates that I feel would help to insure that lessons are being planned from a universal design standpoint. I do not pretend to know everything about these tools but they do look exciting in regards to considering all students in the planning process.
- Authentic Learning Wheels: I stumbled across this while looking for something else. I checked out the Power Point included and it seems like a great planning tool. I really know very little about it but have seen quite a few different planning tools that haven't caught my eye the way this one did.
- John Antonetti's Engagement Cube: I attended a day long workshop about student engagement by John Antonetti where he explained the use of the Engagement Cube. He spoke to using one concept/approach from each of the three faces of the cube when designing lessons.
