24 cloze sheets interactively present the text of the Supreme Court’s “Dred Scott v. Sanford” decision.
The language/meaning focused, "bite-sized" sections of text allow students to work with closely with the content, giving careful attention to the language to find the correct cloze insert from the provided word bank. This approach increases student comprehension, retention, and vocabulary – and provides a strong foundation for discussion and research on this core cultural text.
Ready-to-print, ready-to-distribute, ready-to-mark with marking keys included.
Note: Due to the challenging social themes in this text, this unit is recommended for a mature reader. I hesitate to specify an age as some students have the necessary intellectual maturity and cultural facility in grades six or seven, while others will find the content upsetting even as university students. Teachers should use discretion in assigning this text but, at the same time, not underestimate their students.
