A fully written two paragraph compare and contrast essay using the two stories "Saving the Wetlands" and "Gentleman of Rio en Medio." They are fill in the blanks with a word bank.
Answer key included.
After the students finish this, they should be able to draft their own two paragraph compare and contrast essay about the two stories. The rubric for their essay is attached. It is a half sheet (2 on each page).
I used this with 8th grade ESOL.
