As a team we will tell the story of the Berkowitz School's commitment to social justice and how UDL has been the foundation of our growth both personally and as a school in enacting social justice work. The session will have three parts. The first part will be comprised of an overview particularly focused on creating spaces for educator autonomy, along with an overview of the planning and structures that need to be in place to implement the teamwork that has become the backbone of our social justice/UDL work. We will also explore our belief that collaboration allows individuals to adopt and customize UDL in order to most successfully enact social justice in each unique context. Second, we will share a concrete example of an idea that was developed to reflect this autonomy and teamwork. This segment will focus on how the Instructional Support Team uses UDL as the foundation and catalyst to make positive gains. Lastly, we will share the successes and challenges of this work from the perspective of a classroom teacher, as well as how UDL has impacted her ability to provide access to the curriculum in an inclusion classroom. More specifically, this section of the presentation will follow the story of one or more individual students and how the success of teamwork and structures at a broader school level eventually funneled down to benefit them as learners who had traditionally been underserved.
