Modified Curriculum for Students with an IEP
Are you uncertain about how to support students with significant disabilities in your U.S. History class? You are not alone. Supporting students with disabilities who require modified curriculum can be challenging. A lack of time, resources, and knowledge of best practices can make this overwhelming. We have spent the last two and a half years designing modified U.S. History units using best practices to make this easy: books, printable assignments, flashcards, final exams, lesson plans and more. The very best part, is that you will lead your students with disabilities toward developing to their fullest potential.
Custom Designed For Both Teachers & Parents
Look no further. Our curriculum is very flexible and will work in any setting. We have the modified books, worksheets, and assessments you need. At the end of each unit, there is a book exam to assess learning.
Every unit is aligned with Social Studies and L.A. Standards, addresses common IEP goals, and follows best practices. It’s all done and ready for you!
Our modified U.S. History Units are Fully Developed Units that align to ELA Standards and Social Studies Standards in grades 1-12.
All of our materials include U.S. History topics that address IEP goals in the context of General Education curriculum
Easy To Use
We designed materials to be super easy to use. Each page of each book (we are talking 2 to 3 sentences per page including a picture) has teachers notes that provide all the talking points needed to deliver effective instruction.
With this license, you will have unlimited use of all of our modified U.S. History units. This includes not only the dozens of materials we currently have, but every new unit we design and add to the curriculum. They are all yours at no additional cost!
You will get access to all of our current units plus every new one we add to the curriculum.
We are constantly creating new units. More to come!
Includes Everything You Need
Our U.S. History Units directly address social studies topics, reading and writing, speech and language, and missing background knowledge. Each U.S. history unit includes a book that is written using simplified language and short sentences. Each page typically has two or three sentences and a photograph to support comprehension. In addition, we have created worksheets at various levels to accommodate different learners ranging from non-readers to advanced students with an ID.
Teacher notes for each page of the e-book are provided to give ideas about how to talk about the article. The notes point out opportunities to develop problem solving and ways to engage students in conversations about the content of the article.
What grade are these materials intended for?
Is this easy to use?
Who will teach the modified material and how will they know how to do that?
Should the student only work on these materials in my class?
How can I work better with the parents of my student?
What can I do during instruction to better include the student?
things that the student has read and be able to ask the student questions in class. If this is the case for you, send a copy of the teaching materials including the teacher notes home. Throughout the unit, have the student work on different printable activities that come with the book. There is a book exam at the end of the unit to measure growth.
What if I am not satisfied?
Here’s what they are saying
I am pleased to positively endorse Janet Romo’s books from Austin & Lily Solutions. What I have discovered in using her books is, yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. My group’s reading levels range from 1st grade to 5th grade. With that being said, Janet’s books are working positively for each of them individually and as a reading group as a whole. Janet’s topics are age-appropriate for adults. The first book we used was on Taylor Swift. Because she has chosen interesting and applicable topics, my clients have embraced her books and in addition, they now have subject matter to discuss and have conversations about. A win/win as far as I am concerned! I highly recommend Janet’s series of books. I am so grateful someone has finally developed reading material that appreciates and embraces how those who have intellectual disabilities learn and comprehend!Jill Pearns
