In this blog series we’ve shared information about how UDL provides a framework for focusing instruction on learner variability, ways that planning with UDL can optimize student learning, and where UDL is mentioned in federal laws and plans. But what about teacher appraisal; how do the UDL guidelines connect to T-TESS?
This short video uses a side by side illustration that shows where UDL and T-TESS connect to help create a more student-centered environment. Showing the UDL guidelines matched with T-TESS in this manner helps demonstrate that the implementation of UDL can result in improved practice and performance.
Reflect: How can applying a UDL lens to the T-TESS rubric support you in your efforts to move from teacher-centered actions to student-centered actions?
Join us monthly through July as we discuss the following topics and how the UDL framework can help you close the gap in student achievement. This blog series will culminate with a workshop by Katie Novak, our UDL Distinguished Speaker, on July 27th, 2018!
