This unit on Ancient Rome takes a look at the rise and fall of the Roman Empire from around 500BC to 476AD. It contains 165 pages and 32 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism, who are in middle and high school. This unit addresses Ancient Roman civilization 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 this somewhat tumultuous and confusing time in history. This repetition helps students make connections to this important and often abstract information. In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

✩✩✩ This unit now includes digital versions of the activities. There are 32 google slides and a movie version of the book.

✩✩✩ Thanks to a suggestion from a buyer, I am now going to be including detailed lesson plans with lots of suggested activities you can do with the included materials. 

See the preview for a more detailed look at the contents.

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. 

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.
