Are you looking for a quick and easy way to measure what your students know before or after a unit study?
Textbox Summaries provide a clear summary of the main ideas of the unit with key words missing; a textbox contains those words and names, scrambled up. They can be used as formative assessments for students at the end of each unit and before the summative assessment.
This is a pair of Textbox Summaries for a Three Worlds Meet unit. There is one for Native American Cultures and another for West African and European societies. They allow students the ability to demonstrate their knowledge of this period in history. Also, it enables them to see what they know, as well as what they do not know prior to the unit test.
