Cultural Literacy: Rasputin

OK, moving right along on this already very warm Friday morning, here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Grigori Rasputin. This is a full-page worksheet with a six-sentence reading and seven comprehension questions. It pretty much covers all the bases for this particular charlatan, even his influence on Russian statecraft. It does not include the grisly details of his murder, which may be apocryphal in any case. They are, however, the kind of thing that interests students–though I caution you that this material is probably best–if only–presented to high school students.

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.
