Cloze Reading - Feudalism, Columbus, and the Slave Trade. This is a story quiz I created that has students fill in the blanks using a word bank filled with 40 terms. There are also 10 major places for students to identify in regard to this timer period. The quiz is rather lengthy and takes about 30 minutes for a student to complete. This would be a great quiz to give if you knew you were going to have a substitute teacher that day. Could also be used as a pre-assessment before learning about the build up to Jamestown and England establishing 13 colonies.
The 40 blanks will be filled with the following:
Admiral of the Ocean Sea
European Middle Ages
Governor of New Lands
Percentage of Profits
Treaty of Tordesillas
I teach 8th grade U.S. History using 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. This quiz lets me see how well students are connecting to the story of America so far.
This quiz needs to be printed on 11" x 17" paper and is 2 total pages. I print this on one sheet back-to-back. The word banks will also have to printed and cut for students to cross off words as they use them. They WILL NOT use every word in the word bank! There is an answer key included and I grade this as a class allowing students to grade their own making sure there is nothing on their desks except the red marker I provide for them. That way they can see for themselves which ones they got right or wrong and hear the story read to see how it is put together.
This was a hit with my students and they said they did better on this type of quiz because it is actually a story and easier to follow.
