This workshop is designed for teacher-paraprofessional teams who seek to understand how paraprofessionals can expand their role on a team with responsibility for providing instruction. Based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning, this workshop offers guidance about how paraprofessionals can collaborate with a supervising teacher and other members of an instructional
team to help students learn. The readings and activities are provided for this PD series using a learning management system called “Moodle.”

Participants will:
• identify five phases of the instructional cycle;
• understand Universal Design for Learning principles and their impact on student learning;
• apply instructional scaffolding strategies;
• describe learning targets; and
• identify ways to improve students’ study strategies and test-taking skills
