Barriers in Lesson Planning

In this activity, you will review a science lesson and then apply your learning to revise your own lesson.

Part 1: Go to: and read through the lesson. Record the barriers in goals, methods, materials and assessments.

After you have reviewed this lesson, brainstorm with a colleague and discuss what you could do to enhance it through the use of technology.  Use this resource (UDL Lesson Planning) to compare your identified barriers to the barriers to learning we have identified for Principle I and Principle II. Using the UDL Checklist, and the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines, work with your partner to complete the table for Principle III.

Part 2: Work on revising your own lesson. You may use the blank template (UDL Lesson Planning Template) to organize your thoughts or the UDL Checklist and include your own notes on each of the guidelines.
