How can
Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
help English Language Learners
(ELLs)?
Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
• A set of principles for curriculum development
that applies to the general education
curriculum to promote learning environments
that meet the needs of all learners.

What is WIDA and what does it have to
do with UDL?
• WIDA (World-class Instructional Design and
Assessment) Consortium is the model
instrument that the NCDPI has selected to be
implemented throughout North Carolina.
• Among the many resources that WIDA offers
we can mention the W-APT identification
assessment, the ACCESS assessment, and the
ELP Standards.
WIDA Supports
• Another tool that WIDA has developed is the
“supports.”
• Support is an instructional strategy or tool used
to assist students in accessing content necessary
for classroom understanding or communication.
• Some support may include teaching techniques
such as modeling, feedback or questioning.
Others involve the students using visuals,
interacting with others, or using their senses to
construct oral or written meaning.
WIDA Supports
• If my classroom looks like this…
Using WIDA Supports/UDL might help
so that it looks like this…
