In one PDF file you will receive a student Study Guide to use for closely reading the text book, Topic 7 Society and Culture Before the Civil War. Students tell me, "I can't just look for answers, I have to actually read it!" Also included is the teacher's answer key. As a warm up or review there is a vocabulary crossword puzzle with word bank (spaces and hyphens removed) using words from the Topic. Continue to hone geography skills with a Topic specific map activity.
I have been creating read-along study guides for students for over ten years. This is a GREAT way to get students comfortable with actually READING a text book on their own! I recommend that you model how to do this the first time by having students read a "chunk" aloud and then going over what has been filled in after the chunk has been read. There are boxes at the end of each lesson for you to leave a mark to monitor for progress as you work through the whole topic. Crossword puzzles match the subject specific vocabulary of the whole topic - spaces and hyphens have been removed in the puzzle. Maps synthesis information from throughout the chapter.
