This is an instructional design lesson plan designed for EAL classes struggling with oral presentation skills. As a differentiated activity, we suggest the use of screencasts, which can greatly enhance student learning by integrating a visual piece to an audio-visual means, as well as by providing an opportunity for introverted...

I thought this lesson was very well designed and organized.  Right aways by looking at this lesson I could see that several UDL principles were incorporated into your lesson.  I really like the fact that students are creating PowerPoints in this lesson as well as getting into screecasting.  Both are great and teach students some very valuable skills.  My primary concern with your lesson is the fact that students have only one path of options to show their understanding of the content.  For example students who might be kinesthetic learners.  A possible option involving an actual live skit that they perform that might be video recorded and where the same content knowledge might be displayed by the student.  I think you lesson has many great layers of activities in it but I would love to see some different options for students to express their understanding of the content.  I would also like to see some more mention of technology assistance for students who may struggle to read.  An example would be adding some type of talk to text so students who struggle with text (PowerPoints) would have some extra assistance.  I spent twenty minutes looking over your lesson and thought it was fantastic.

I love that you have differentiated the lesson to allow students who are shy alternative tools to express themselves. I believe the more you integrate these tools into other lessons, the more comfortable students will become expressing themselves.

Technical Remarks:

You may find this interactive storyboard,,  helpful for students who struggle with organizing their thoughts for the videos they produce.
