Three ways to ensure a french revolution lesson is accessible to non-english native speakers.
Pre-lesson activity: KWL Pre-lesson activity Doing the Know, Want to Know, portions of this activity, even just as a bell-ringer, allows me as a teacher to better understand what information all students know, what some students know, and more specifically, what my ELL students don't know that will prove to be a knowledge gap.
Activity: Vocabulary self-selection During the lecture or activity that coincides with this topic (in this assignment, a powerpoint) students will write-down, circle, or somehow indicate which words they don't know or understand. Then, a homework assignment could combat this lapse in information.
Post-lesson debrief: Pacing When either discussing the homework assignment from before, or going over the same content for round two, it is important to remember to talk slowly, to pause, and to allow for all students to comprehend and decode what you're saying.
