Equity is one of the three core principles of Each Child Our Future, Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education. The plan states that the greatest education challenge remains equity in education achievement for each child.
The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework provides a way to remove the barriers that marginalized student populations face. In addition, UDL is an expectation for the 11 District Plan and can be found in ESSA as a means to providing flexible options for all students.
Together we will explore the UDL framework as we read and discuss Equity by Design by Mirko Chavin and Katie Novak. (Book is provided.) By the end of the book study, you will:
- understand the connection between UDL and social justice
- define the concept of social justice education
- examine the five steps to creating the foundations of equity in the classroom
- determine actionable next steps for your classroom/building/district using the UDL framework
