Session Goals:

  • We would like participants to identify the underserved populations in their systems.
  • We would like participants to define the ways the inclusion of these underserved populations would make their system better.
As an artist needs tools, teachers need strategies. This session is all about how UDL is helping us see our student populations differently in Sanger Unified. We are living in the analogy of a box of crayons. Rather then trying to make the students fit the system and catering to only a few different tools and strategies (colors of crayon) that work for "most" students, we let the student needs drive the strategies and are seeing how our dynamic students are giving our system all these new colors to create great lesson experiences. We will share specifically where we are in our UDL rollout as a district, giving lessons learned a long the way and where we eventually would like to be.
