    Description

    Cloze Reading - French and Indian War to Civil War. I have used these Cloze readings as the end of unit quizzes for my students and I've found they do so much better when the information is in the context of a story. Of course, instead of quizzes these cloze readings could be used as a pre-assessment to find out what students know or don't know about that portion of history. Another great way to use cloze reading is through a cooperative learning activity where students work together to try and figure out the right answers. There are a lot of possibilities so you can choose a way that will work best for you and your students.

    I teach 8th grade U.S. History and use the Creating America: Beginnings through World War I text book. My classes are comprised of general education, special education, and gifted and talented all together. These Cloze reading quizzes let me see how well students are connecting to the story of American's history. The quizzes need to be printed on 11"x17" paper and answer keys are provided for all three quizzes. Each quiz takes, on average, about 30 minutes to complete

    Included in this bundle are:
