Product Description

This unit on US and Afghanistan relations contains 167 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school. This is my fourth in a planned series on current events topics that teachers are now being asked to address in middle and high school special education settings.


This unit addresses 1) how our two countries work together to fight terrorism, 2) the Afghanistan war, and 3) the current state of affairs between our two countries. The information is presented in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on how these two countries have tried to work together against the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and now ISIS. This repetition encourages a better understanding why this is a hot topic today. In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

✩✩✩ Thanks to a suggestion from a buyer, I am now going to be including a PRE-RECORDED POWER POINT SHOW with automated advancement to use in your lesson or for students to listen to on their own. If you find this helpful, be sure to let me know in the feedback. I may go back and add this to many of my other units.

*****************************************************************************

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
