Effective, enjoyable, and easy to use, these stories improve both comprehension and spelling while students learn about Women's History.
The eight short biographies of high-achieving women provide complete wording with blanks for most of the vowels that the readers then must supply. Students enjoy trying to provide them.
This variation of the cloze technique, accepted by reading authorities as an effective comprehension strategy, requires students to recognize sentence structure and meaning as a way of improving comprehension. Spelling practice with vowels is an added feature.
Each story fits on one side of a piece of paper, and an Answer Key is provided for easy grading, if desired. Stories include several different ethnic groups.
