In this lesson students will write paragraphs that compare and contrast. Pre-writing graphic organizers (three Venn Diagrams) are included for planning purposes and for organizing thoughts. Students will follow the writing process and complete both rough and final drafts. They will also use part of the Six-Trait Writing Rubrics to self-assess their work upon completion. This unit can take up to two weeks to complete; however, time requirements should be based upon your individual needs and classroom setting.
