Lessons & Culminating Activity

Leveled Text Cards

Use high-interest, differentiated text cards written at four distinct levels to facilitate the differentiation process. Every lesson has four cards (60 cards total) written at four different reading levels, but all the levels remain strong in presenting the social studies content and vocabulary.

Assessment Tools

Each lesson contains assessments for evaluating how well students have met the objectives of the lessons. The assessment activities help pinpoint areas in which students did not grasp the concepts of the lesson. The form of this assessment varies from lesson to lesson. A multiple-choice quiz is provided for each lesson.

The final Culminating Activity allows students to use what they have learned in a project-based assignment.

Audio Recordings

Each lesson begins with a content-based rap to spark students' interest in the topic.
