Are you introducing nonfiction text structures with your students? Are you looking for an easy way to introduce, practice, and assess student understanding of compare and contrast text structure? If so, this product is for you!
This product begins with an introduction printable to review the basics of compare and contrast text structure.
Then, the product continues with a two-sided practice worksheet in which students will read closely, identify structure-specific signal words, and graphically organize information within two brief texts. The first text focuses on the differences between elementary and middle school, and the second compares modern cell phones to original cell phones.
Finally, the product concludes with a compare and contrast text structure paragraph-writing assessment to monitor student concept understanding. Students will select a topic with a clear compare/contrast connection, will graphically organize their ideas, and will then follow a checklist to write a complete compare and contrast paragraph of their own.
Total Product Includes:
- Directions for use
- Compare/contrast text structure introduction printable
- One two-sided practice page (provided in two versions: one in which students draw and complete their own graphic organizers, and a second in which students simply complete a provided graphic organizer)
