Product Description

Biography & Reading Comprehension Questions Worksheet - Dr. Marie Maynard Daly, Chemist.

Dr. Marie Maynard Daly was an accomplished scientist during a time that females, especially African American woman, were shunned by most in the science fields. Despite this, she was the first African Amerian woman to earn a PhD in chemistry, and her remarkable work as a chemist has had implications for the understanding of the structure of DNA, gene expression, and cardiovascular health.

In this assignment, students read a 2-page biography about the life and scientific accomplishments of Dr. Marie Maynard Daly. They then answer 10 text-dependent reading comprehension questions. Save time and paper by making just one class set of the biography reading (1 page front/back) and reuse them class to class.

Makes a great sub plan! Answer key provided.
