The Underlying Causes of the Civil War: Failure of Political Compromise PowerPoint includes two ability levels, basic and enriched, to differentiate instruction. It is great to use with a co-teacher and split the class. The enriched PowerPoint goes into more detail and allows for more critical thinking. The basic PowerPoint simplifies the content and allows time for peer review after each slide to increase repetition for the students who need it. If you don't have a co-teacher, choose the ability level that will work the best for each of your classes. There are graphics, maps, pictures and links. There is also vocabulary and an essential question.
The content is as follows:
Compromise of 1850
Founding of the Republican Party
Dred Scott Case
Election of 1860
There is also a differentiated instruction lesson that goes along with this PowerPoint but it is sold separately. It includes:
3 Ability Levels of Vocabulary Sheets
Enriched Note Sheets for both PowerPoints
Basic Note Sheets for Enriched PowerPoint
Basic Note Sheets for Basic PowerPoint
2 Ability Levels of a Primary Source Interpretation Activity
Answer Key for Primary Source Interpretation Activity
Paragraph Writing Assignment with Grading Checklist
