Having trouble teaching common core writing and test prep writing? I have developed this because my students really struggle with compare/contrast writing.
This walks them through the writing process while doing research, using a graphic organizer, and then writing. Students will research facts about each president and fill out a graphic organizer. Then, they will write 2 paragraphs. One paragraph they will compare the two, the other paragraph they will contrast the two presidents. A grading rubric is also included.
