Have you been looking for the perfect problem-based learning unit for your class but have diverse learners in your classroom? I am a special education teacher and have developed a PBELL (problem-based enhanced language learning) unit that includes the same research articles on two different reading levels.
This unit comes with everything you need to be successful in your diverse classroom!
Included in this unit
Tip sheet for differentiation and accommodations
Instructions for solutions showcase
Read-A-Loud activity and worksheet
Research article - Version A 4-6th grade, Version B 2-3rd grade
Material prep instructions
Interactive article for students to further their research
Sheet of additional research websites
Worksheets to take research notes and to summarize their learning.
Bookmarks with sentence frames to support language
Solution rubrics for 3 different solutions and a blank rubric for you to customize
This unit was used in my 7/8th grade special education class. However, due to the leveled reading passages this could be used in a wide-range of grades.
