Differentiated Instruction lesson on the Iroquois Confederacy

Where can I find a differentiated instruction lesson on the Iroquois Confederacy?

Differentiated Instruction Lesson on the Iroquois Confederacy

There are two places where you can find the differentiated instruction lesson on the Iroquois Confederacy. The differentiated instruction lesson plan on the Iroquois Confederacy uses different ability levels to help all students learn the content. It also includes a fun activity that allows students to pretend they are part of the Grand Council. They have to decide if the Tuscarora should be allowed to join the Confederacy.

How does the Iroquois and Algonquian Cultures Lesson Plan Differentiate Instruction?

Social Studies differentiated instruction is done beautifully in the Iroquois and Algonquian Cultures lesson plan. It uses both the Multiple Intelligence Theory and ability levels to differentiate instruction.

To differentiate instruction for vocabulary, there are three vocabulary ability level worksheets. They all give the option to either use the linguistic Multiple Intelligence or the Spatial Multiple Intelligence in the right hand column. The enriched version of the vocabulary sheet allows students to write the definitions using their own words. The average leveled sheet allows students to fill in the blanks of the definitions. The basic leveled sheet allows the students to take the time they need to read the definition and then fill in the right had column just like the other levels. Below is the average level vocabulary sheet.

The Iroquois and Algonquian lesson plan continues to differentiate instruction by providing three levels of note taking sheets for students. The enriched version allows for more critical thinking by allowing them to choose what they include in their notes and how they state it while following the PowerPoint. The average note sheet is more guided and allows them to fill in the blanks as they go through the PowerPoint. The basic version sheet follows the PowerPoint mini-lesson and is almost all intact. The reason for this is to allow the students to listen to the content and then while the other students are writing in their notes, these students, who need to have repetition, can use partner review or ask questions for clarification. There are also maps and charts in both versions to bring in the Spatial Multiple Intelligence.

Even the activity section of the Iroquois and Algonquian lesson plan uses differentiated instruction. There are two options for students to use the same content. The first option is writing a diary entry. Writing a diary entry brings in the linguistic and interpersonal or intrapersonal (depending on if they choose to have a partner or not) Multiple Intelligence. The second option is a drawing. The drawing brings in the spatial and interpersonal or intrapersonal Multiple Intelligence. Both of these activities even come with grading rubrics.

For the concluding set, two ability level versions of a graphic organizer are available. The basic version takes away the labeling step.

Iroquois and Algonquian Cultures Differentiated Instruction Lesson Plan

The NYS 7th grade social studies curriculum includes the Iroquois and the Algonquian cultures. What’s funny is that the Algonquian and the Iroquois are actually linguistic groups. The Iroquois that were included in the Iroquois Confederacy do have a similar culture but the Algonquian speakers in NYS were very different from one another. In the Iroquois and Algonquian Differentiated Instruction Lesson Plan, I go into detail about the:

1. Settlement Patterns of both linguistic groups

2. Creation and Belief Systems

3. Importance of the Laws of Nature and the Wise use of Natural Resources (Iroquois and Algonquian)

4. Gender roles

5. Family, Kinship and Education

6. Language

Iroquois (Haudenosaunee-People of the Longhouse) and Algonquian People adapted to the environment in which they settled

The 7th grade NYS Social Studies curriculum encourages teachers to teach about the NYS environment and how it affected the early cultures of the Iroquois and the Algonquian. The curriculum is stated as follows:
Iroquois (Haudenosaunee—People of the Longhouse) and Algonquian People adapted to the environment in which they settled

1. Geographic regions of New Yo r k
2. Diversity of flora and fauna
3. Seasons and weather patterns
4. Kinds of Settlements and Settlement patterns

Iroquois and Algonquian Cultures Lesson Plan

In my opinion, it is important to split this content up into three different social studies differentiated instruction lesson plans.
When I made the Geographic Regions of NYS lesson plan, I focused on the geographic regions of NY, diversity of flora and fauna, and the weather patterns. I also added the Great Lakes and the major natural waterways of NYS. I did this to show the importance of water that will be built upon in the next lesson plan.
In the Iroquois and Algonquian Cultures lesson, I put the kind of settlements and settlement patterns in which incorporates the following part of the 7th grade NYS social studies curriculum:
The Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) developed cultural patterns that reflected their needs and values
1. Creation and religious beliefs
2. Importance of the laws of nature and the wise use of natural resources
3. Patterns of time and space
4. Family and kinship
5. Education
6. Conceptions of land ownership and use
7. Language
C. Algonquian Culture
1. Spiritual beliefs
2. Spatial patterns
The Iroquois Confederacy Lesson Plan focuses on the Government and gender roles within the government.
