This is based off of McDougal Littell's World History: Patterns of Interaction.
I teach using history using an interactive notebook (supporting documents sold separately) so I try as much as I can to differentiate my instruction. This allows students to be super organized and the class is consistent- we all have the same notebook with the same work in the same order: it allows us all to remain on the same page and teaches students all the different things they can do with the information presented to them. I do a little bit of direct teaching (lecturing) and incorporate all of my activities, discussion questions, and assignment directions in one file so that I don't get confused.
This zip includes:
1. PowerPoint presentation that explains the components of culture and how its transmitted, shift from hunting and gathering societies to agricultural, and the rise of civilizations.
2. Vocabulary assignment directions: how to use SIOP strategies to enhance comprehension.
