Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Constitutional Convention in the nascent United States. This is a half-page worksheet with a reading of three compound sentences and three comprehension questions that are in two or three parts each. As I looked at this document prior to posting it, it occurred to me that if probably would be better as a full-page worksheet with the questions broken up. Since this is a Microsoft Word document, you can alter it for the needs of your classroom.
If you find typos in this document, 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.
