Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Head set- Students who may have vison issues can listen and control the sound volume as the video is playing. By using head-set, I can use this video in small groups and create a center for Social Studies. Students with comprehension issues can play and replay the video so they can understand the content of the video at their speed of understanding. For EL students, I can turn on the captions, so they can link the words they hear with written text. Caption can also benefit students with hearing issues as well.

Lesson idea implementation:


Introduction: TWA - Do You Know what February is? That is right Black History Month. Can you think of any person of color we celebrate? Teacher will let the students think about and share who they know and why. TWS Today we are going to talk a little about Martin Luther King, Jr and his many contribution to Civil Rights.

Teacher will show video from BrainPop about MLK


As a class, we will make a digital timeline on MLK using readwritethinkg.org. We will pin point major events and explain why they were important and the impacts it had on history.

I will have a list of important historical figures (Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Jimmy Carter, Fredrick Douglas) so students can research and create a digital timeline. Students can use books, internet research, video (BrainPop) or other resources approved by teacher.

Once completed, Students will have a chance to share with the class who they chose and the time line they created with the class.

The teacher will post timelines on the class web page, so students can share with their parents.

Reflective Practice: As I think about this lesson and how I can expand it, I would reach out to my parents and

see if any of the parents or grandparents were involved in the civil rights movement.

I would invite them into

the classroom and talk with the students about that time. I feel if I can make a connection for the students, they will have a better understanding of the impact of the this movement.
