About
James Russel Lowell (JRL), an urban school in the Indianapolis Public School system (IPS), is a learning environment where many students face challenges in their classrooms, homes, and communities. The school’s journey toward implementing UDL has tasked district and school leaders to ask: What Does UDL look like in a school where the vast majority of students exist “at the edges” of school success? Drawing on perspectives from numerous stakeholders, this session encourages a much-needed dialogue with viewers to consider ways to make the UDL framework most applicable and equitable for historically marginalized schools.

No votes yet

About
This presentation seeks to define what true equity looks like within the framework. Participants discover how to provide success for all beyond inclusion by evaluating their own perspectives on what educating all students really means by using real life examples and demonstrations from real student scenarios and educational experiences. At the end of the session, the participants will be able to determine how their own unconscious and implicit biases effect their practice and will be provided with specific strategies and tools to eliminate those biases based on utilizing the UDL framework as not only an instructional tool but as a measure of the level of acceptance of individuals with differences inside and outside of the classroom setting.
