Feudal System Unit for Special Ed with digital activities | Distance Learning



Total Pages 160 plus 42 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 3 Weeks


This unit on the feudal system contains 160 pages and 42 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit addresses the main points relating to this land-based economy from the middle ages 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 the learning about kings, barons, lords, and peasants. This repetition encourages a true understanding of the importance of the Feudal System and the impact it had on the history of Europe and the world. Finally, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

✩✩✩There are now digital versions of the activities in this unit. There are 42 google slides (includes a differentiated set) and a movie version of the book.

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.
