for Educating All Leaners. Universal Design for Learning, or UDL, is a sub-series of the Instructional Practice Series (IPS) and a framework for the curriculum and programs you're already using. UDL gives easier curriculum access to all of the learners in your class, from the early finishers to the late bloomers and everyone in between. UDL offers more opportunity for all of your students to participate in your program and progress toward success. It offers a place to belong. And isn't that why you became a teacher in the first place?
