These reading guides are great if you have the textbook Holt United States History Beginnings to 1877. The questions go along with the chapters so students read the chapters and answer questions as they go. There are 6 reading guides in here for:
Chapter 3, Sections 1 and 2
Chapter 4, Sections 3 and 4
Chapter 5, Sections 1 and 2
These cover the Constitution, how it was formed, why, and the Bill of Rights. I teach one section per week, so I give one reading guide per week to my students. This can be done as homework, in groups, or individual class time.
Each reading guide should take students about 45 minutes to complete. Each reading guide has 15 questions.
