Product Description

This unit on the Branches of Government and the Legislative Process takes a deeper look at each branch, who makes up each one and what their duties are. It contains 240 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism, who are in middle and high school. This unit addresses not only each branch of government, but also the checks and balances in place and how a bill becomes a law (Legislative Process) in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on how the US government is structured and works. This repetition helps students make connections to this important and often abstract information. In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

✩✩✩ Thanks to a suggestion from a buyer, I am now going to be including a PRE-RECORDED POWER POINT SHOW with automated advancement to use in your lesson or for students to listen to on their own. If you find this helpful, be sure to let me know in the feedback. I may go back and add this to many of my other units.

*****************************************************************************

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
