The Early Attempts to Govern Newly Independent States lesson plan differentiates instruction by providing two or three different ability levels of each piece of the lesson plan.
For the notes, the enriched version goes into more detail and has more links. The basic level also has links but they are reduced and the content is simplified to allow students time for review and repetition.
The content included is below:
Lexington, Concord, Breed's Hill, Washington, Jefferson, Henry, Franklin, Adams, 1st & 2nd Continental Congresses, Olive Branch Petition, Declaration of Rights and Grievances, Declaration of Independence
Also included in the differentiated instruction lesson plan is:
