Total Pages 158 pages plus 32 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks


This unit on the French Revolution contains over 150 pages and 32 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit addresses the main characteristics and reasons for the French Revolution 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 learning about this time in history when the French people stood up to fight for their freedom. This repetition encourages true understanding of this important time in history. Finally, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

✩✩✩This unit has digital versions of the activities. There are 32 google slides 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.
