This reading was specifically designed to accommodate struggling ELL students, (Wida levels 1 and 2) However it is great for special ed, resource and younger students as well. I integrated pictures along with a picture dictionary to help students of all ages and abilities understand the forms of government; democracy, monarchy and dictatorship. I have used it with my seventh agrade Ancient Greece unit and recently used it again in eighth grade when discussing forms of government to help ELL students understand the concept of politics and political systems. Included in this packet also are worksheets with sentence frames to practice and assess understanding. There is additionaly a matching quiz which can be used as a formative or summative assessment.
