MakeBeliefsComix.com has published a special free printable for Women's History Month at http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Printables/print.php?category=Featu...

It asks: Imagine that you could talk with any woman in history whom you admire. Who would that be and what would you say to her.

You are welcome to print it out and also pin it on your Pinterest page. Hope you will share with your students.

I wanted to share a fabulous site... Sheppard Software has a ton of content games that look great on the SMARTboard. The kids and teachers here are loving it. We really like that the site has a lot of built in levels in the games, since many of our classrooms have kids of varying levels and abilities. Enjoy!

If you go to the Graphic Novels & Comics books, depending on your population, they might enjoy some of the comics creation software listed at the top of that forum!

Have you checked out Voice Thread?

Thanks for getting in here and starting a discussion.

Hi Everyone, I'm a tech specialist at a special ed school, and I'm always looking for new ways to incorporate technology into our classrooms. Any ideas floating around out there? We're doing some pretty awesome stuff with activity schedules on iPods and video modeling, as well as trying to get into the whole SMART Board thing. I'd love to hear what other people are doing!

Hey Everyone, so glad Mike put this group on the map. In response to Robert and Judy....

First off, yeah the People Speak is a great resource - see this post - FILM/ARTICLE/STUDY GUIDE: Howard Zinn's 'The People Speak'- with links to the study guides.

Echoing Robert, I do think that all good teaching is aligned with special ed goals, in that it is differentiated and multi-modal. I always find all kinds of music and media engages reluctant readers (hence Mindblue and this Ning)

To those ends check out these old posts as they might give you some more ideas.

See the info about Teaching Tolerance Films & free Civil Rights/Ben Harper Study Guide here: Making Civil Rights POP?

See these posts on history graphic novels:

and this fun post on using photos -

Oh and since you're in Chicago - you've GOT to check out this animated This American Life Lost Buildings - in credible DVD - it is still for sale at the This American Life store and it is INCREDIBLE.

Hope these get you started on mutli-modal high interest history resources!!

Happy Holidays!

Judy, I have an example for you.
http://www.history.com/video.do?name=People_Speak

It is an audio/visual presentation of first person history. Very good for students who do not read well.

Resouces for LD students depends a lot on what the disability. In what way are the students disabled? I would guess their reading level is down. If the student could use text to voice reading would no be an issue. Are there other problems you need to prepare for?
Comment by Judy Pollack on December 16, 2009 at 2:22pm
Any ideas for LD resources for Social Studies at the HS level appreciated!
