Cloze Reading Strategy Bundle - French & Indian War Through the U.S. Civil War


This is a history story I created that uses the "Cloze" reading strategy where touching on the main points from Washington's presidency through the War of 1812. Students will fill in the 50 blanks within the story using a word bank provided. There are more words and dates in the word bank than students will use. The quiz is rather lengthy and takes about 30 minutes for a student to complete (some more some less of course). This would be a great quiz to give if you knew you were going to have a substitute teacher that day.

I teach 8th grade U.S. History using the Creating America: Beginnings through World War I text book and this goes along with Chapters 9 & 10. My classes are comprised of general education, special education, and gifted and talented all together. I have used this as an actual vocabulary quiz as well as a pre-assessment before we learn about the topics in this time period.

This quiz needs to be printed on 11" x 17" paper and is one page. The answer key and the word bank are also on 11"x17" paper with the word bank having four word banks per page that get cut out to save on paper. 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.

Here are the words/dates in the word bank:
