File Size:  7 MB

Duration:  3 weeks



Revolutionary War Unit contains almost 200 pages and 38 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism.


This unit on the Revolutionary War addresses the causes and effects of this important time in our history 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 Revolutionary War. This repetition encourages a true understanding of the importance of the American Revolution and the impact it had on the history of the United States.


Finally, many of the Revolutionary War activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.


*****This unit includes digital versions of most of the activities from this unit. There are now 38 google slides and a movie version of the book.

See the preview for a 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.
