Description

This unit on the Civil War is available with DIGITAL activities included. Click HERE.

Civil War Unit contains over 100 pages and 19 google slides 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.

✩✩✩Looking for more ideas on how to use the timeline cards included in this unit, check out my blog post:FREE LIFE-SIZED TIMELINE

✩✩✩ This unit includes digital versions of the activities. There are 19 google slides that include a differentiated set of slides. There is a movie version of the book included as well. THESE WOULD MAKE A GREAT INDEPENDENT LEARNING CENTER FOR YOUR CLASSROOM.

See preview for a detailed look at the contents.

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

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 purchases 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.
