Product Description
Civil War Unit contains 80 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on the Civil War addresses the important people and main battles of the Civil War 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 the Civil War. This repetition encourages true understanding of the impact and importance of the Civil War. Finally, many of the Civil War activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

I have a companion unit to this Civil War Unit on the Reconstruction, the time period immediately following the Civil War. See below for the link.

See preview for a detailed look at the contents.
Civil War Unit Includes:

• 27 page book covering major people and battles of the Civil War
→ Abraham Lincoln
→ Jefferson Davis
→ General Grant
→ General Lee
→ Stonewall Jackson
→ Frederick Douglass
→ Fort Sumter
→ Gettysburg
→ Surrender at Appomattox
• Circle map reviewing main events from Civil War
• 16 Civil War Vocabulary cards
• North vs South Sorting activity
• Civil War Timeline Cut and Paste
• Student booklet reviewing important people and battles of the Civil War
• Civil War Assessment (2 versions)

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.

Consider checking out my companion unit on the Reconstruction Era that covers the years immediately following the Civil War.
