In this module, you will continue work on your multipart, developmentally appropriate lesson

plan for early childhood learners. The goals of this assignment are (1) to provide

developmentally appropriate learning opportunities to support preschool students’ physical,

cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional development; (2) to plan and manage instruction

applying the elements of Universal Design for Learning (UDL); (3) to provide a rationale and

evidence to support learning activities, and (4) to identify ways to involve parents in learning

activities.

This module’s focus is on teaching and learning activities based on the elements of the

Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Course Objectives

ï‚· Explain the multiple components of curriculum designs appropriate for early childhood

education.

ï‚· Apply the concepts of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to appropriate instructional

designs to meet the needs of all learners including those with special needs.

ï‚· Design and evaluate an evidence-based curriculum that promotes physical, social,

emotional, cognitive, and language development in alignment to developmentally

appropriate practice.

 Demonstrate knowledge of effective teacher/family interactions, families’ cultural

backgrounds, and how to involve families in the classroom.

ï‚· Design a developmentally appropriate curriculum and learning environment which

includes media and technology in early childhood settings.

Directions:

1) Save and print the Module 2 Application PDF.

2) Create a Word or text document for your lesson plan. Use 12-point Arial or Times New

Roman font.

3) Use citations and references in APA (6th edition) format as specified in the assignment

directions.

4) Create a title page and references page in APA (6th edition) format.

5) Use the bold headings below to organize your Part 2 lesson plan:

1. Lesson Objective/s: Copy and paste lesson objectives from the Module 1 Analysis-

Application: Part 1 Lesson Plan.

Part A: Elements of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is used by teachers to design lessons which are inclusive

and incorporate technology. Here are links to examples of lesson plans written using UDL:

There are three major elements to Universal Design for Learning: multiple means of

representation, multiple means of engagement, and multiple means of expression.

2. Multiple means of representation: Students are given multiple ways to acquire knowledge

and to understand information. For example: readings, audio recording, presentation, video,

map, pictures, review questions, demonstration, modeling, visual, tactile, movement, etc.

 List two ways that students will acquire the knowledge needed to be successful in

meeting the lesson objectives that you listed in the Module 1 assignment, and explain

your rationale.

a. Information representation 1:

Rationale:

b. Information representation 2:

Rationale:

3. Multiple means of expression: Students are provided with different methods of

demonstrating what they have learned.

 List two ways students can show what they have learned (talking, writing, reciting,

illustrating, selecting, describing, reporting, following directions, showing, etc.) Explain

your rationale.

a. Learning expression method 1:

Rationale:

b. Learning expression method 2:

Rationale:

4. Multiple means of engagement: Students are able to participate in learning in multiple

ways. Curriculum Development: Methods and Strategies

 List two activities that take into account the different skill levels of students in the class.

Include child directed activities (sing songs, interactive video games, activity centers,

toys, etc). Explain your rationale.

a. Participation activity 1:

Rationale:

b. Participation activity 2:

Rationale:

Part B: Parent Participation

5. Activity: Suggest an activity for parents to become involved in the lesson.

Rationale: Include your rationale for choosing this activity
