Get your students excited about the 2016 Presidential Election! Through the biographies of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, students will learn about the lives of these two candidates. Using these biographies is a great way to not only meet the Common Core Standards for informational texts, but to integrate Social Studies and current events into your reading block. Students are asked to read the biographies, answer text dependent questions, and then use a Venn Diagram as a pre-writing tool to complete a compare and contrast essay.
An essay-writing tutorial is included, to lead your instruction on comparing and contrasting two topics, as well as a writing rubric checklist. The tutorial and rubric are generic, and can be used for any compare and contrast writing assignment. Also included is 2016 election themed writing paper for publishing students’ final copy of the essay.
