Lewis and Clark Differentiated Instruction Webquest

Differentiate Instruction for Lewis and Clark!

Lewis and Clark Differentiated Instruction Webquest

Lewis and Clark Differentiated Instruction Webquest

As teachers, we all know how time consuming it is to plan for differentiated instruction. When I was creating my Manifest Destiny and the Acquisition of Land differentiated instruction lesson plan, I came across two websites that were perfect for differentiated instruction for a middle school classroom.

Both of the websites are a part of the national geographic site. One is perfect for enriching the content because it provides primary source documents of Lewis and Clark‘s journals. The other is perfect for a basic version because it simplifies the events in a game format. I went through both of the sites and created a Lewis and Clark differentiated instruction webquest. I can’t wait to use this in class.

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement in America lesson differentiated instruction

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement in America

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement in America Differentiated Instruction Lesson Plan

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement

Social Studies differentiated instruction is creatively displayed in the Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement of the Americas lesson plan at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kasha-Mastrodomenico. It uses 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 hand column just like the other levels.

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement

The Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement in the Americas lesson plan continues to differentiate instruction by providing two 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 basic note sheet is more guided and allows them to fill in the blanks as they go through the PowerPoint. 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. The pictures and links in the PowerPoint also bring in the Spatial Multiple Intelligence.

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement

The activity section of the Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement of the Americas lesson plan offers two options for students to choose from which should increase their interest. The first option is a Magazine Advertisement Activity with a focus on the linguistic and spatial Multiple Intelligences. The second option is a Talk Show Activity which focuses on the linguistic and kinesthetic Multiple Intelligences. The students also have an option of working with either a partner or by themselves which brings in the interpersonal or intrapersonal Multiple Intelligence. There is an activity choice sheet that should be filled out by the students the day before the activity is to be started. This helps the teacher know how many copies of each activity will be needed and allows enough time to group appropriately. Each of these activities comes with a rubric too!

Geographic Factors Influenced European Exploration and Settlement

There are two versions of the graphic organizers. One is for students who need more direction and the other is an enriched version.

There is a paragraph writing activity for homework and it comes with a grading checklist.
