Library Learning Commons

” A learning commons is a whole school approach to building a participatory learning community. The library learning commons is the physical and virtual collaborative learning hub of the school. It is designed to engineer and drive future-oriented learning and teaching throughout the entire school. Inquiry, project/problem-based learning experiences are designed as catalysts for intellectual engagement with information, ideas, thinking, and dialogue. Reading thrives, learning literacies and technology competencies evolve, and critical thinking, creativity, innovation and playing to learn are nourished. Everyone is a learner; everyone is a teacher working collaboratively toward excellence.”

UDL Lesson Plan Template

“UDL lesson plans consider four curriculum components, which make up a complete learning
experience. Educators have many options and choices for how to format their lesson design.
Below is only one example. Regardless of the format you use, all UDL lesson plans consider
goals, methods, materials, and assessments. You will notice that in the sample below, you
design the lesson by first considering goals, and then designing assessments before considering
methods and materials. This backwards design relates to the Understanding by Design (UbD)
framework. Using UDL and UbD together ensures that the backwards design of curriculum
meets the needs of all learners.”
