This unit has been written for students with special needs. The student will need the ability to answer questions with two choices, manipulate cut and paste answer choices and select answers from multiple options. The student does not need to write independently. This unit is made for students with moderate to severe needs in mind, however, because World War II is such an envolved topic, the information can be extensive and difficult to retain. The teacher will need to keep this in mind.
The unit includes two quizzes and a final test for assessments. These assessments were created for the following Virginia Alternative Assessment Standards.
