they know about the meaning of Communism. Teacher will write a short, clear and concise
definition of Communism for students to copy down.

title tab. Teacher will cut tabs on the front cover while modeling for students.

follow the teachers example and create a foldable. Students will use scissors to cut following
teacher example.
Step #3: Writing Vocabulary

each box of their foldable, teacher will move onto definition slides on power point. Teacher
will give time for students to write the definition of each word.

definitions of each word on the left column inside the foldable in the correct order.

displayed with vocabulary words. Teacher will show slides of images that represent each
vocabulary word. Teacher will urge all students to think of which word matches the image
without looking inside their foldable. Teacher will use cold calling to illicit responses.
b. Students called on will share out which vocabulary word corresponds with the image
displayed on the board. If students need to open their foldable to assist them they may.
B. Application Task: Vocabulary Activity (Worksheet) Students will have 5 minutes to
complete the 2-part vocabulary worksheet. In first section students will match each word to
its definition, then write in vocabulary words into correct sentences, showing proper usage in
section 2.

vocabulary worksheet will be the most significant means of assessing student mastery of the goal.
VI. Accommodations for Individual Learners: Teacher will have ready made foldables available for
students who struggle to create their own. Teacher will have extra handouts with vocabulary words
and definitions for students who struggle in writing abilities. Those particular students will focus on
drawing pictures as means of showing understanding of word meaning.
