Product Description
This graphic organizer works with almost all informational texts. It's a great way to begin comparing and contrasting 2 texts on the same topic.

Students are asked to determine:

•author's purpose
•cite text evidence
•main idea/central idea
•author's tone
•fact and opinion
•draw conclusions
•write a summary
•compare the two articles
•analyze portrayals

I think these are especially useful of 2 non-fiction texts that are delivered slightly differently. For example, if your students were studying concussions in football, it might be interesting to read one article that is critical of the dangers of football and one that is neutral. This helps students to see that non-fiction information can be manipulated, and we must read critically.

In my classroom, this led to a great debate on how historical accounts can be subjective and that author's can display bias.
