The Presidency of Lincoln Differentiated Instruction PowerPoint has two ability levels; basic and enriched. The basic version simplifies the content slightly. The enriched version goes into more detail and allows for more critical thinking. The basic version allows time for a partner review after each slide for those students who need repetition. This PowerPoint is great to use with parallel teaching by splitting up the class with the two different teachers if a second room is available. It can also be used without a co-teacher by choosing which version will work the best for each of your classes.
The PowerPoint includes links to primary sources as well as one video. It also has essential questions and vocabulary. The content included is as follows:
Personal Leadership of Lincoln
Opposition to Lincoln
The PowerPoint will take about 30 minutes to complete if no links are used. It will take about 45 if the links are used.
There is a differentiated instruction lesson plan that goes with this PowerPoint but it is sold separately. It includes the following:
3 Ability Levels of Vocabulary Sheets
Enriched Note Sheet for both PowerPoints
Basic Note Sheet for Enriched PowerPoint
Basic Note Sheet for Basic PowerPoint
2 Ability Levels of the Gettysburg Address Activity
