Description

In today's classrooms there are a wide variety of student interests, needs, and abilities. Current research on Developmentally Appropriate Practice suggests that incorporating the principals of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can help teachers bridge gaps in understanding and experience by providing students with multiple entry and exit points in each lesson. UDL is an approach used to meet students' diverse learning needs in the classroom. The purpose of this study is to reflect on how implementing UDL teaching strategies into the current teacher-led math lessons will affect student engagement. Data sources included: student engagement frequency counts, video recordings, anecdotal records, and student artifacts. We expect to find higher levels of engagement among students who received targeted UDL teaching strategies. This study is important because it can help support all teachers in differentiating and accommodating for the diverse needs of today's learners.
