The Alike but Different strategy will help your students organize their thoughts and information concerning different points of comparison. In this literacy activity, students are given a brief article and a table of information that describes: Democracy, Communism, Fascism, and Nazism. For your visual learners, I have also included a 10 minute video clip comparing governing styles. Using the Alike but Different answer template, your students will record similarities and differences concerning governing styles of countries during World War II. The activity ends with a writing prompt that encourages persuasive writing and the use of the information they organized on the template. Use the writing samples for your formative assessment. This activity usually takes me three (50 minute) class periods.
