There are 8 Reading Guides in here that correlate with the Holt United States Beginnings to 1877 textbook. These reading guides go with:
Chapter 7, Section 2
Chapter 8, Section 2, 3, and 4
Chapter 10, Section 1, 2, 3, and 4
The reading guides cover everything about the Westward Movement, from the settlers, Indians, moving to the Wild West, Texas, California, Oregon, Pioneers, Oregon Trail, Alamo, War with Mexico, and the Gold Rush.
Each reading guide is 15 questions and they follow the order of each section. Its perfect for students because they answer the questions as they read the textbook. This can be done in groups, individually, or for homework. I teach one section per week so I always give one reading guide per week. Each reading guide should take students about 45 minutes to complete.
Answers are included (minus chapter 10 section 1).
