At first, I struggled with how to teach 2.RI.9: Compare/contrast same- topic texts. Then I came up with the idea of looking for common points and annotating the texts to make the common points stand out. Included are these anchor charts/posters: vocabulary posters (common points, same topic texts, annotate), 4 steps for How-to C/C two same-topic texts, and 4 essential question posters.
These anchor charts go with the practice and assessment pages I've uploaded at my store "jframe". Also, I have a freebie called 'important points in texts'.
