This choice board focuses on the RL6.9 compare/contrast standard.
It encourages students to analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge/compare the approaches author's take. This choice board will help prepare the students for the PARCC requirements of comparing/contrasting texts and force students to think on a deeper level and beyond the surface.
Students will compare/contrast the following:
Character <--> Character
Lesson <--> Lesson
Theme <--> Theme
Struggles <--> Struggles
Wants/Needs <--> Want/Needs
Each choice has clearly stated instructions, along with examples/sentence starters to help the students develop their response into a fully detailed page that includes deep thinking, textual evidence, and theories about the texts.
This document can be easily modified to your needs with the removal of sentence starters in order to up the level or even more detailed broken down support.
