In this Earth Day-themed paired text lesson, students compare and contrast the presentation of a similar theme or topic across genres (different types of writing) to explain how each genre shapes the author’s presentation of the theme. They will be looking at two texts: Margaret Mead's Earth Day Speech of 1977 and Jane Yolen's poem "Earth Day." Next they use their problem-solving skills to raise awareness of the need to be good stewards of the earth. Students love getting "their hands dirty" with this real-world project and presentation, and you will love that they are critically thinking about the world around them while demonstrating their understanding of key CCSS.
