This is part of an even larger CONSTITUTION UNIT BUNDLE. You save $27.00 when you purchase the unit bundle instead of each piece individually. You can find it here: Constitution Unit BUNDLE Common Core & Differentiated Instruction

Why are there two ability levels provided? My co-teacher in the past has had a room that was available for us to use. We would split up the class a lot and both teach at different ability levels. The periods that I didn't have a co-teacher, I chose the ability level that was most appropriate for each of those periods.

This PowerPoint and lesson plan were last revised on 10/28/2013. All links worked on that day. I cannot guarantee any of the links because I do not control the internet. Thank you in advance for rating and commenting about this PowerPoint. Please be as specific as possible when you comment so that it provides other teachers the knowledge of why you rated the way you did. For instance, if you think that there is an inaccuracy, please state what it is. I take into consideration all ratings and comments when I revise my products. You help me become a better teacher and writer.
