Everyone Grows
Even though it’s hard work, I find great joy in seeing plants sprout and flowers bloom throughout the growing season. Just like it’s my job as the gardener to prepare the soil for my plants, it’s my job as a UDL facilitator to prepare a learning environment that is suitable for learners of all ages and experience levels. See how I use the UDL Framework to help design a learning environment so that everyone grows.
