This presentation works from the concrete (pictures) to the abstract (words); as well as comparing characters in a short story to comparing two separate stories.
Print the final page of this presentation for your students. Copy the sheet back to back so they have 8 graphic organizers to work with. Work in a whole group, small group, or partners and choose the organizers that best fits each situation. Have students discuss their choice and their answers as a whole group or in small group. All answers will vary.The graphic organizers can then be used to generate a writing project.
