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.
