This is a great paired-reading worksheet that uses the CLOZE Notes strategy. Students use the two versions (A and B) of the reading to fill in the blanks on their own sheet.
A one sentence example is below:
In the post _____________ period, spurred by wartime government spending and the federal government’s support for the building of the _____________________ railroad, __________throughout the United States expanded rapidly.
In the post Civil War period, spurred by ______________ government spending and the __________ government’s support for the building of the transcontinental railroad, industry throughout the United States expanded rapidly
Working together, they are able to complete the reading. Each page has ~twenty-five blanks that need to be filled in.
