Types of Conflict Unit for Special Education PRINT AND DIGITAL



Total Pages 158 plus 34 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks


This unit on Types of Conflict contains 158 pages plus 34 google slides and was developed for students with autism and other special learning needs. This unit has various activities to help students to determine the type of conflict in the story and why it is important. This unit covers internal vs external and person vs person, person vs nature, and person vs society. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in the activities either through cut and paste worksheets or digitally through google slides. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on recognizing the type of conflict. This repetition encourages a deeper understanding of this concept.

*****This unit includes digital versions of the activities. There are 34 google slides (includes a differentiated set) and a movie version of the book. See the video preview for a walk-through of the slides in this unit.

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, we can ask students questions that 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.
