Provide a brief explanation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that includes an explanation of how UDL is used to benefit all students including diverse learners. Use information from professional literature and websites, presented in your own words. This should be clear enough for someone unfamiliar with UDL to understand.
- Select a UDL Principle and Guideline from the CAST UDL Guidelines matrix. link below
(choose “Action & Expression_ Expression & communication”)
- Identify a peer reviewed article from a professional literature that describes a strategy aligned to that UDL Principal/Guideline. Select an article that have been published within the last 12 years
- Review the Checkpoints included under the Guideline selected to identify a specific strategy aligned to the Guideline
- Write a summary for the selected article in paragraph format to include the following three components. Use each of the bulleted items as a heading.
• Description of the strategy
• Explanation of how the strategy reduces learning barriers
• Explanation of the alignment of the strategy to the selected UDL Guideline and Checkpoints.
veral gray matter regions, such as the superior temporal sulcus and posterior cingulate cortex, which are related to social information processing” (Li et al.). Evidence can show different traits are present within the brain through different scans. Through neuroimaging techniques, the most prominent method in picturing personality neuroscience is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI) (Allen & DeYoung). An MRI “creates images of the brain based on the magnetic properties of different tissue types while measuring brain function and structure” (Allen & DeYoung). An fMRI relies on the “blood oxygen dependence level that indicates when different regions of the brain are more or less active” as well as showing functional connectivity through temporal pattern of activation and deactivation in different areas of the brain (Allen & DeYoung). Similar to the fMRI, electroencephalography (EEG) measures neural activity at a higher temporal resolution while recording electrical activity along the scalp (Allen & DeYoung). Next, the SBM analyzes cortical indicators of the brain through thickness, surface area, volume, mean curvature and sulcus depth that of which measures different properties of brain cortical surface morphology (Li et al.). Later on, the usage of SBM will show correlations of indicators of psychophysiological and neuropsychological relationships. Brain Scans and the Relationship between the Big 5 and Psychopathology: The basis of antisocial and psychopathic behavior is complex and is connected to brain structures that involves the regulation of impulsivity, emotional arousal, affect, and aggressive feelings which can be categorized under the Big 5 factors of neuroticism and openness. “An increasing body of knowledge from brain imaging research is implicating brain abnormalities in the etiology of psychopathic and antisocial behavior, including abnormalities of the prefrontal cortex, temporal cortex, hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus, angular gyrus, cingulate, basal ganglia, and amygdala” (Raine et al.).>GET ANSWER
