This week’s readings and videos helped me get a clear understanding of what diversity of learning is and what the principals of universal design for learning are. Every classroom is composed of a group of diverse students; they all have different learning styles, achievements levels, various backgrounds, home environments, and learning needs. It is imperative that follow the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in our lessons, to help insure that we are providing the same level of education to every student in our classroom, regardless of their learning needs. Our lessons need to incorporate various learning resources to give student various opportunities to successfully understand and apply new concepts. We must also provide them with multiple ways to express and assess what they have learned, and we must also find ways to engage, challenge, and motivate students’ learning.
