Product Description
A simple comprehension worksheet that goes with listening to James Taylor's song Millworker. Millworker is about a woman who works in the mills in Lowell, Massachusetts. I've included copies of the lyrics to the song with the worksheet.

The original purpose of the worksheet was to be used for a self-contained special education post-Civil War US History class. The activity was also used for some students working on the alternate assessment as using a song they could listen to provided a "read aloud" accommodation.

I have since discovered that some of my students learning English, as well as some general education students who just do not read very well benefit from opportunities provided by this type of lesson; especially when they are required to provide their opinion instead of an explicit answer.
