On Election Day, 2018 it is a rainy day in Springfield, Massachusetts. Don’t let that prevent you from getting to your polling place! This is one of the most consequential elections cycles in my life time. I’m an old guy now, so you know that’s really saying something.
Today seems like as good a time as any (I’d actually been saving these for a Black History Month post) to post this reading on the 13th, 14th and 15th. Amendments and its accompanying comprehension worksheet. Also, this Everyday Edit on the Voting Rights Act is an timely document to post this morning, especially in light of the attempts around the country to suppress universal suffrage. Incidentally, if you like that Everyday Edit exercise, I’ll remind you once again that the good people at Education World give away a year’s supply of them at no cost to you.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
