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
This module’s focus is on teaching and learning activities based on the elements of the
Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Explain the multiple components of curriculum designs appropriate for early childhood
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.
Design and evaluate an evidence-based curriculum that promotes physical, social,
emotional, cognitive, and language development in alignment to developmentally
Demonstrate knowledge of effective teacher/family interactions, families’ cultural
backgrounds, and how to involve families in the classroom.
Design a developmentally appropriate curriculum and learning environment which
includes media and technology in early childhood settings.
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
3) Use citations and references in APA (6th edition) format as specified in the assignment
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
a. Information representation 1:
b. Information representation 2:
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
a. Learning expression method 1:
b. Learning expression method 2:
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:
b. Participation activity 2:
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
