Product Description
Students are asked to complete a plot summary handout for the stories "Finding Lincoln" by Ann Malaspina and "The Other Side" by Jacqueline Woodson. Comprehension questions are included for after the reading, which ask students to identify the Point of View, Change in Perspective, Character Traits, and include Textual Evidence. Students are then asked to begin comparing and contrasting the story elements after choosing 3 categories from a list presented. These charts will allow students to transfer information smoothly into a compare and contrast essay.

To be sure that chosen textual evidence is accurate, students are asked to highlight key words from the direct quote that support the claim.
