The Miracle on Ice

When I taught in Springfield, Massachusetts, (which hosts a minor league hockey team), a number of female students in my literacy intervention class wanted to read–to my great surprise, though I don’t know why–about hockey. So I worked up this reading on the Miracle on Ice and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet for their consumption. If you’re not old enough to remember it, or are not a hockey or Olympics fan, the Miracle on Ice is the United States Olympic Hockey Team’s upset victory over the Russian team at the 1980 Olympics at Lake Placid, New York.

I thought I published this when I prepared it, but I guess not. So here it is now.

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.
