Focus Activity
 Do you know how you learn best? If so move to option one, if not
move to option two.
 Option One: How do you learn best? When did you become
aware of how you learn best?
 Option Two: Try and discover how you learn best by thinking of
things you have learned and how you have gone about learning
the information. For example, maybe you remember making flash
cards for a test that you aced. Maybe you remember building a
birdhouse that helped you understand measurement. Spend time
reflecting about how you learn. Once you realize how you learn, it
will make learning more meaningful, enjoyable, and efficient.
 Share your experience with classmates.

Looking Back
 Social studies is as diverse a subject as the
learning styles or the cultural make-up,
spoken language/s, and/or exceptionalities
in your classroom.
 Equip yourself with the tools, skills, and
knowledge necessary to effectively teach and
accommodate instruction to meet the
diverse learning needs of all students.

Extension
 Winter break has just concluded and you greet your
students, who shower you with sweet and heartfelt
comments about how they missed you. As you are
about to greet the last student you realize that you do
not recognize her. You say “hi” and ask her “where are
you supposed to be?” She does not answer. Just then,
the guidance counselor comes from around the corner
and explains that you have a new student who just
moved here from Brazil, named Carlota.

Extension
 Imagine Carlota is in your class: how will you
accommodate your social studies content and
instruction to meet her learning needs?
 Select a social studies topic and grade level. Then,
develop an engaging lesson plan that includes
accommodations to meet the needs of all students,
including Carlota.
 Share your lesson plan and accommodations with
classmates.
