What is successful UDL Implementation? Advocating for preparation programs for students with learning differences as they transition to high school
This presentation will highlight how creating a summer preparation program founded upon the 3 guiding principles of UDL can ease the high school transition experience of students with learning differences. Presenter will share results from the collaborative process of the teaching staff. Participants will leave with ideas on how to implement a similar program in their school sites to ensure that students who learn differently are given choices to access the curriculum and to express knowledge gained. Research from Hattie's work on Visible Thinking and Collective Teacher Efficacy will be introduced. According to new findings by Professor John Hattie, a strong sense of Collective Teacher Efficacy (d=1.57) can yield over three years of student growth over one school year. Now ranked the most powerful influence on achievement in the Visible Learning research, Collective Teacher Efficacy is a belief that together teachers can positivity impact student learning. This body of research combined with the universal framework of Universal Design for Learning may be a powerful combination for exponential change in our schools.
