Product Description
This is a biographical minilesson about the Tennis Champion, Althea Gibson. In the 1950s Althea Gibson had a dream. Her dream was to become the best woman tennis player in the world, but she would have to beat the opponent of segregation to achieve that status in sports. There are 3 pages of informational text along with 3 separate photographs of Ms. Gibson. The text is followed with 12 multiple choice reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. There are 4 choices for each question. Reading skills assessed are: Locating Details, Drawing Conclusions, Making Inferences, Interpreting an Idiom, and Identifying Fact from Fiction. Vocabulary words include: origins, segregation, tennis etiquette, and tournament. The idiom phrase is "against all odds. I try to write the questions so they model those found on standardized tests, making the lesson a helpful test prep. It should also prove to be a quality resource for Black History Month. The product is on a word document, so you can easily edit it if necessary. The 7th page is the answer key.
