Do you feel like your current practices need a change, but you're not sure where to start? Are you stuck in a rut? Join our team as we read Katie Novak and Allison Posey's book, "Unlearning: Changing Your Beliefs and Your Classroom with UDL.” Universal Design for Learning (UDL) suggests exciting ways to design and deliver engaging, rigorous learning experiences - as a growing international movement of UDL practitioners can attest. However, implementing UDL also requires us to unlearn many beliefs, assumptions, and teaching practices that no longer work. In this lively and fun book, UDL experts Allison and Katie identify elements of what they call "The Unlearning Cycle” and challenge educators to think again about what, how, and why they teach. The authors share hard-won lessons in a caring, collegial way. Unlearning is a refreshing tonic for anyone looking to rejuvenate their teaching practice and make room for growth. As a result of participation in the Unlearning book study the participants will learn about the 5 components of the Unlearning cycle as they reflect on their current mindset/practices in order to reframe their thinking about designing instruction for diverse learners across a variety of contexts. All sessions will be held virtually using Zoom, and the link will be sent to registered participants prior to each session date. To ensure Act 48 credits are received, please register on Frontline for this 4 part series. For more information and to order your copy of the book, visit our smore at: https://www.smore.com/9ah2j
