This file includes texts and activities to help readers in grades 4-6 compare texts.

Comparing Poems to Expository Texts: Two text sets with poems and accompanying articles, comprehension questions, and writing prompts.

Comparing Poems: Two sets of paired poems, with comprehension questions and writing prompts. One set, "Autumn Poems", is fairly easy and accessible to students; the other set, the classic "My Heart's in the Highlands" and "Oh, Shenandoah" are much more challenging Passage-based essays and a rubric are included.

Comparing Narratives: One set of stories, with pre-reading activities, comprehension questions, and essay prompts. These stories take place in different time periods, but show a similar theme.

Please note that my materials are uploaded in multiple documents, with both PDF and Word documents included for easy editing. This is a zipped file. Several of the texts and stories included have been previously published in my other units.
