I have used these Cloze readings as the end of unit quizzes for my students and I've found they do so much better when the information is in the context of a story. Of course, instead of quizzes these cloze readings could be used as a pre-assessment to find out what students know or don't know about that portion of history. Another great way to use cloze reading is through a cooperative learning activity where students work together to try and figure out the right answers.
