I teach US History using an Interactive Notebook framework, with mini-lessons presenting content followed by activities in which students analyze or otherwise engage with that content. This handout is a cloze version of the notes I use in my interactive notebook, which could be used as review or for a flipped classroom, depending on your resources and needs.
For the 2015-16 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment, 15% of my students achieved the level of Distinguished, with 51% attaining Proficient or higher while 89% performed at Developing or higher. For the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment, my scores were as follows: 74.2% Developing or higher, compared to 73% for Georgia, and 41.2 Proficient or higher, compared to 39% for Georgia. I created this resource while teaching in a Title I school where I did not have textbooks.
