Summer Book Study - How to Personalize Learning, Chapters 4, 5 and 6

In the third session of our Summer Book Study, our conversations around Chapters 4, 5 and 6 looked closer at using the UDL Lens of Access, Engage and Express. Using the UDL Lens in a three-step process that includes the Learner Profile, Personal Learning Backpack and Personal Learning Plan helps each learner tell their story and acquire the tools and skills to be independent learners. This lead us to the next conversations about how to PL for a whole class and design lessons with all learners in mind.

Session 3 - July 20th
hosted by Kathleen

Chapter 4: Discover the Learner in Every Child
Chapter 5: Personalize Learning for the Whole Class
Chapter 6: Lesson Design with All Learners in Mind


The Big Question 

How can the UDL Lens be used to develop learner agency with all learners and to inform your daily instruction?


We used the Q1, A1 format and asked the following six questions:

The conversations began about learners sharing their stories using the Learner Profile, what is in their Personal Learning Backpacks and what goals could be created in a Personal Learning Plan. This created a dynamic dialogue that we have shared below. From this #plearnchat, Pam Hubler created a #hyperdoc on becoming an Expert Learner. A visual of that is shared below the quotes. Enjoy!

I strive for my student learning to be visible whenever possible. When I can see them learning and growing w 100% engagement!
I really look to the classroom snapshot when trying to start with addressing room full of different learners. It is invaluable.
Know what your students need to be successful. Design lessons and supports with them in mind. Be flexible!

Conference w/ Ss and reflect on work. Plan together. They are more vested and understand why they are learning it.

I’ve got a pretty full backpack-some cool new tools are some VR apps to help students with mobility issues have experiences.

 And here is the Hyperdoc created by Pam Hubler after this #plearnchat. Thank you, Pam!
