Then, I will ask students what a historical fact is. I will provide the definition of something that really did happen inthe past. I will add this to the paper. Next, I will ask students what does compare and contrast mean. I will then provide students that the definition of compare means when you look at two or more things and try to find things that are similar. However, contrast means looking at two or more things and finding the differences betweenthem. I will write this on the paper. The paper will then

I will then explain to students that they will use these termswhen creating their presentation and doing their research. I will alsolet students know that they are expected to find a traditional song from their country to play to the class during their presentation. I will hand each student aquestions worksheet. On this worksheet will havequestions that the students must answer with their research and in their presentation. The questions will include: 1. What is the name of your country and who is

I will explain to students that the presentation must be done as if they were their charactertalking about their own life in that country. They will use terms such as I live in a country that has a “blank” type of government. During the last five minutes of class, I will have students complete their formative assessment.

When a student is understanding everything and has no questions, they will leave their cardon green. When they have questionsor are not understanding something, they will flip their card over to the red side.This will allow for me and the paraeducator to realize that this group needs help.

Since, differentiation was already created for the research, it is not needed for this lesson.
