Overview

This book is going to fill a need that many teachers have had for a long time. As you probably know, it has been just about impossible to find quality materials to help in sheltered or limited English US History classes. It was written by an experienced teacher with who has faced some of the same difficulties that you have. It is difficult to make history relevant and interesting to students with limited English and little experience with common American cultural and governmental traditions. The activities in this book are a blend of the course content in US History, and the grammar component that is necessary both for comprehension of the subject matter and general English fluency. The lessons in this book have two key components that will make your job a lot easier: 1. Hands-on sheltered classroom activities that take advantage of multiple learning styles and differing language acquisition levels. These are often very active and engaging. 2. Grammar exercises based on the vocabulary of the lesson that reinforce both grammar skills and the content area goals. These exercises will help build stronger readers and writers while reinforcing the main ideas of the course content in US History.

Meet the Author

Richard Di Giacomo graduated from San José State University with a B.A. in Ancient and Medieval history, a B.A. in Social Science and an M.A. in American History. He has been a teacher for over 20 years and has taught in a variety of schools from private and continuation schools to public high schools. He has taught everything from at risk and limited English students to honors and college preparatory classes. The subjects he has taught include U.S. and World History, Government, Economics, Bible and Ethics, History of the Cold War, and Contemporary World History.
He has been a reviewer and contributor to textbooks, and a frequent presenter at social studies conferences on the use of simulations, videos, and computers in education. Rich’s love for role-playing and strategy games led him to develop his popular simulation books. His years of experience teaching social studies to limited English students led to this current book. When he was unable to find enough high quality materials for this subject area, he decided to write a book of his own!
