PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This goes with Industrialization. It uses leveling to differentiate instruction. The Growth of the Corporation as a Form of Business Bundle showcases oil, railroads and steel. It follows the NYS 8th grade social studies curriculum and standards. It differentiates instruction by having two different ability levels; basic and enriched.

What's in the PowerPoint?
The enriched version has more links and the basic version simplifies language. This is great to use when parallel co-teaching but if you are not lucky enough to have a co-teacher, you can choose the version that will be most helpful to your students in each class. The same content is used in both versions.

The following is on the vocabulary slide:
1. Corporation
2. Trust
3. Monopoly
4. Horizontal Integration
5. Vertical Integration
