Women's History Bio-Texts: Comprehension and Spelling Practice

Fun!   Timely!   Effective!   Modern!   Easy to Use!

Improve comprehension and spelling while learning about women’s history.

Great for homework, seatwork, and learning centers.

These eight short biographies of famous women resemble cell phone texts. The students are provided the complete wording with blanks for most vowels that they then must supply.

This variation of the cloze technique, recognized as effective by reading authorities, requires students to analyze sentence structure and meaning as a means to improve comprehension.

Each story fits on one side of a single piece of paper.  An Answer Key is provided for easy grading, if desired.  Students enjoy the challenge of completing each story.
