Strategic Instruction: Social Studies 10
We learn about many different people in our schooling lives. An easy way to make this accessible for students with disabilities is to explore where these important people are from. This Social Studies class was learning about Louis Riel, for Dustin, his goal was to learn about where Louis Reil was from…Manitoba!!!
There are fascinating facts about Manitoba that could also help other students connect with, that are engaging and a great hook, like hockey, Winnie the Pooh and polar bears!
This could be done for many people: Shakespeare, Stuart McClean, Lois Lowry or even Obama! Everyone is from somewhere, and this book can be used for any province or city. A great template to use for students who are modified in content classes.
