To add insult to injury, if your students do poorly, it’s on you.

Women’s History Bio-Texts

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/WOMENS-HISTORY-Spell-with-Vowels-3018855

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

Improve comprehension and spelling while learning about Women’s History!

Great for homework, seat work, and learning centers!

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

This variation of the cloze technique, accepted by reading authorities as an effective strategy, requires students to recognize sentence structure and meaning as a way of improving comprehension. Spelling practice with vowels is an added feature!
