PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Comparing and contrasting is a challenging reading skill. Each of these 24 cards features a short passage along with two text-dependent questions. To add more rigor, several of the cards may also require some inference for full understanding. Each card is focused either on people, places, events, or a nonfiction topic.

Great for test prep or as extra practice for your text structures lesson. You could use them orally with small groups and have students discuss the answers. They could also be used individually with students responding either with a T-chart (same/different), a Venn diagram, or in paragraph format. A recording chart is included so that students can keep track of which cards they have completed.
