UDL-CCSS Video Crosswalk

The National Center on UDL library of UDL principles and practice videos illustrate how to apply the UDL guidelines to classroom lessons. They can also be used to demonstrate how to address specific Common Core State Standards (CCSS). View the following videos and read these overviews to learn which UDL principles, UDL guidelines, and CCSS are highlighted in each video.

The Grade 1 Mathematics video specifically addresses these Mathematics CCSS:

Grade 1 Mathematics

While teaching the above mathematics CCSS, the Grade 1 Mathematics video demonstrates a teacher who offers multiple means of representation by providing manipulatives as well as auditory and visual information, highlighting critical features and the structure of the mathematical concepts, and supporting linguistic content with non-linguistic materials to promote language understanding. To provide multiple means of action and expression, she varies the methods for student response, provides students with graduated levels of practice and response options, and offers multiple tools for constructing and expressing their knowledge. The teacher also provides multiple means for engagement by allowing the students choices in tasks and materials, linking the content to items that are relevant to 1st graders, varying the demands and resources, fostering collaboration by using small group activities, consistently providing mastery-oriented feedback, and closing with a self-assessment to aid self-reflection.

The Grade 5 Language Arts (ELA) video specifically addresses these ELA CCSS:

Grade 5 Language Arts

While teaching the above language arts CCSS, the Grade 5 Language Arts video demonstrates a teacher who presents multiple means of representation by clarifying vocabulary, activating background knowledge, highlighting critical features, and maximizing memory transfer of information from previous class sessions. The teacher also provides multiple means of action and expression by encouraging students to use multiple tools for composition, guiding students in goal-setting, and supporting planning and strategy development. To offer multiple means for engagement, he structures small group collaboration with clear, defined roles, recruits students' interests, and encourages students to make individual choices that are personally relevant.
