World History--Part 2: Teacher's Guide [and Student Guide]. Parallel Alternative Strategies for Students (PASS).
Schaap, Eileen, Ed.; Fresen, Sue, Ed.
This teacher's guide and student guide unit contains supplemental readings, activities, and methods adapted for secondary students who have disabilities and other students with diverse learning needs. The materials differ from standard textbooks and workbooks in several ways: simplified text; smaller units of study; reduced vocabulary level; increased frequency of drill and practice; concise directions; and presentation of skills in small, sequential steps. The unit focuses on world history and correlates to Florida's Sunshine State Standards. It is divided into the following 12 units of study that correspond to identified social studies strands: (1) the Industrial Revolution; (2) major events and achievements of the 19th century; (3) imperialism; (4) World War I and aftermath; (5) the Russian Revolution and the Soviet regime; (6) the world between the wars; (7) Fascist dictators; (8) buildup and events of World War II; (9) the Cold War and postwar period of Europe; (10) Asia; (11) the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America; and the (12) fall of the Soviet Union. For each unit, the guide includes a description of the unit's content and describes the focus, provides suggestions for enrichment, and contains an assessment to measure student performance. Appendices in the teacher's guide include recommended instructional strategies and teaching suggestions. Appendices in the student guide include excerpts from Nazi war criminal and Holocaust survivor testimonials. (Contains 112 references.) (CR)
