These graphic outlines have been developed to enable you to provide support to your students. They are especially designed to support students who require scaffolding to access and organize information, such as students with Specific Learning Disability, Dyslexia, but we have found them useful for all students. We have included the ones that we had most success within our classrooms, because we know they work. Included in the pack of 18 graphic outlines includes layout examples of how they can be used in subjects such as English, Math’s, History, Geography, Science, Health, Politics, Economics. The subject uses are endless. We have included a range of graphic outlines to cater for secondary and high school students as well as students in elementary or primary school settings. HOW TO USE A GRAPHIC OUTLINE Chose a graphic outline that appeals to you Either use the ones with headings on or a blank one and insert your own headings. Model to the class (or individual) exactly how to use it, and leave your example up as a reference point. (We suggest you enlarge it so it is easy for everyone to see). As a class, complete a worked example together and provide feedback to students to ensure they understand how to use the graphic outline. Make the graphic outline available whenever it is appropriate in any of your lessons. OUR SUGGESTIONS Although these have been designed to support you in making adjustments in your classroom, experience tells us that this type of scaffolding is useful for all students. Graphic outlines are also useful for students who like to ‘doodle’ or draw their notes as it provides them with a framework. By making them available for all students you are promoting inclusivity and no individual student feels embarrassed because they have something ‘different’. Model, complete worked examples and have available several different graphic outlines in your classroom. Students, like us, will develop preferences for a particular layout. If you have found these useful, be sure to check out our other resources to support you in your classroom.

This unit lesson will lessen the difficulty students with special needs have learning about and understanding history. By researching family history, students with special needs will realize that history delves in the past and that everyone has a history that can be passed down to families, friends, and historians. The goals and objectives provide teachers with an outline of this approach. The suggested activities, starting with each student investigating the history of someone in his/her family which will be displayed and presented by the student to the class. This will provide a foundation from which to explore historical events by having each student identify any event in the local, state, national, or world history their relative might have witnessed or with which s/he was involved. The teacher then arranges these historic events into a timeline to acquaint the students with how to research and display historical events.
Capacity PP aimed at special needs, early learning. Visual and simple to understand by young children or those with learning difficulties.
