Cloze Reading Strategy Bundle - French & Indian War Through the U.S. Civil War
This is a story quiz I created that has students fill in the blanks using a word bank filled with 50 terms/dates. The quiz is rather lengthy and takes about 30 minutes for a student to complete. Would be a great quiz to give if you knew you were going to have a substitute teacher that day. You could also use this as a pre-assessment before starting this time period in history.
I teach 8th grade U.S. History using the Creating America: Beginnings through World War I text book. This is a general idea story that takes students from Feudalism in Europe, to Columbus, to the French and Indian War. 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 so far.
This quiz needs to be printed on 11" x 17" paper and is 3 total pages. I print this on three separate sheets that are stapled together. I have students tear off the word bank so they can have that on the side to cross off words as they use them. 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.
Here are the words/dates in the word bank:
House of Burgesses
Line of Demarcation
Salem Witch Trials
