Background Causes of the American Revolution Lesson Vocabulary

The anticipatory set is a vocabulary work sheet that is based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory and uses ability levels to differentiate instruction. There are three sections: vocabulary word, definition, and allows student choice between a drawing or a sentence that shows understanding. There are three ability levels of these sheets to challenge students on their own ability level. The basic level includes the vocabulary word and definitions so that they can read it and then use it in the third box with either a drawing or a sentence. The average ability level includes the vocabulary word and slotted definitions in which they fill from the PowerPoint. The slots highlight the most important part of the definition. They then will need to draw or write a sentence in the third box. The enriched version allows room for more critical thinking by having the students write the definition in their own words and then work on the third box for drawing or a sentence. Below is an example of the three ability levels vocabulary sheet.

Background Causes of the American Revolution Lesson Note Sheets

Differentiated instruction continues with the note section of the “Background Causes of the American Revolutionsocial studies differentiated instruction lesson plan. There are two ability levels of a PowerPoint that contains the same content. The basic level has been simplified to allow students the opportunity to finish their notes and have time to review with a partner or on their own. The basic note sheet uses slotted notes that they can fill in as they go through the PowerPoint. The enriched version goes into more detail and allows the students to use their critical thinking skills to write their notes in their own words. Below is an example of the basic note sheet that goes with the PowerPoint.
