PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Compare Contrast Two or More Texts: Close Reading Strategies and Activities
Aligned with the Common Core State Standards

Use the handouts to encourage close reading and compare/contrast of two or more texts or sources (may be used with multimedia sources such as graphics, videos, podcasts, etc.). Includes modified Venn Diagrams specific to the CCSS.

These activities may be used with any news, feature, informational, explanatory, argument, opinion, editorial, persuasive, narrative, or autobiographical article/text. Note: the 6th grade handouts specifically address comparing two biographies or a biography with a memoir.

Students will be required to find evidence from the text to support their answers.

*LINKS to numerous nonfiction articles are included. The articles appeal to teenagers and issues that teens are dealing with.*

OBJECTIVES
