Bring it on: Cultural and Linguistic Variability

Feedback form is now closed.
How can we lower barriers to learning and respond to the variability of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students and second language learners? Using a problem-based approach (e.g., the use of scenarios, protocols, and/or posed questions), this session will focus on how the UDL framework applies to learner variability among CLD and second language (L2) learners. In small group discussions, participants will clarify aspects of learning that are shaped by culture and impacted by L2 development. Through examination of the UDL guidelines, participants will (1) explore elements of learner variability relevant to CLD students and L2 learners and (2) identify options for engagement, representation, and action and expression that allow CLD students and L2 learners to achieve academic standards. Participants will have time to reflect on their current environments and what steps they will take to enhance their learning environments and lessons using the information gained during this session.
