  22. The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of all Learners  By Carol A. Tomlinson

  23. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) • What is UDL?http://lessonbuilder.cast.org/window.php?src=videos UDL

  24. Alberta’s Classroom Populations are Diverse

  25. Setting the Direction

  26. Universal Design for Learning • Multiple Means of ExpressionPresenting information and content in different ways (the "what" of learning) • Multiple Means of RepresentationDifferentiating the ways that students can express what they know (the "how" of learning) • Multiple Means of EngagementStimulating interest and motivation for learning (the "why" of learning) • http://www.cast.org/research/faq/index.html#q1 UDL

  27. Sample Project Websitehttp://maasd.edublogs.org/inquiry/

  28. Learning Contract Plan for answering the question

  29. Keeping Your Project on the Rails • Chunking • Task /Milestone checklist • Extra tasks • Choosing partners/groups • Cross-student sharing/assistance • Learning spaces and supervision

  30. Project Assessment • Establish assessment criteria with students beforehand • Process as well as end product?
