Finally! A standards based curriculum for students with disabilities
If you are an educator of special learners and haven’t yet heard of ULS (Unique Learning Systems) I am thrilled for you to read this post! I am by no means an expert and this is my first year using ULS but I can tell you I am completely and totally impressed! As most special education teachers I struggled from` the very beginning with providing practical and realistic curriculum while also aligning my lessons with the common core. I still remember when I first transferred into a self-contained classroom from only previously teaching general education…I asked my principal what curriculum I was supposed to use. He literally said, “Whatever you want”. Uh…. excuse me? I felt lost and insecure and started to mix a little bit of this and create a little bit of that. I seemed to manage but boy did it feel like a lot of work and a lot of “creativity” on my end and in the back of my mind I always felt like there were a few whose needs I was not meeting. Later in the year I was selected to participate in a pilot research program later to find out the program was to implement the use of Unique Learning Systems in my classroom. So….without further adieu here is why I am such a believer in this program.
