Product Description
One of the most difficult forms of writing I believe there is to teach is Comparision and Contrast, aka Similarities and Differences. It is problematic at best for students to manage this task when they are asked to provide more than a few details when comparing and contrasting while keeping in mind that they must also come up with a solid essay with a solid introduction and conclusion while not forgetting any transition words/phrases. Now, add to the mix that there might be more than one way to organize your argument and you have the perfect storm for terrible essays. You can see why I wait late in the year to start teaching this.

TO address this I present to you a 2-part example for your students to refer to when they have to write one of these.

NOW INCLUDES AN EDITABLE POWERPOINT!!! This was converted from the Illustrator PDF file so there may be minor issues you have to deal with.

Languages
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have updated the resource to include a separate file in Spanish. I am not a native speaker, relying solely on Google Translate to do the bulk of the work, I hope that the translation is accurate. No soy un hablante nativo de español. Estoy usando aplicacione para traducir mis cartas de anclaje al español. ¡Si hay cualquier error grmmatical por favor notofy yo inmediatamente!

Printing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Document dimensions 24"x31" (scaled up from a letter-size format). It will print safely on regular copy paper. Make sure that you have your settings to fit the document to print before you actually print.
Not a lot of wall space? Want to save paper? Display this on your interactive whiteboard during the lesson.

Editing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is a high-resolution vector-based illustration created in graphic design software.
This file cannot be edited in any office software (ex, Word, Powerpoint).However, I discovered that you can use Inkscape, a FREE vector-based program, to open and edit the PDFs included in the download, although you will most likely need to make some adjustments to the file after you do. This will enable you to use vector-based graphics for cleaner anchor charts/posters.

Issues/Corrections
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you spot a typo or other errors contact me immediately for a revision. I try to proofread my own work and have other sets of eyes check it as well, but some things slip through. I can make corrections nearly immediately. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Custom Work
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you need a custom version of this file, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I want you to be happy with your purchase!
