      Janeth-

      I don't have a background in World Language, but UDL strategies can certainly be used across any content area. If you've never explored the UDL framework, it's a really powerful way to design standards-based curriculum that can be accessed by all learners, regardless of variability. For some background on UDL, read about the framework from CAST, a non-profit that began research on UDL as best practice over three decades ago: http://www.cast.org/udl/index.html

      Read the UDL Guidelines for a list of strategies you can begin to use right away: http://www.cast.org/udl/index.html

      Once you have a background, there are a number of practical books that outline strategies you can use right away as you begin to implement UDL in your learning environment.

      Good luck,
