There are many graphic organizers that help students as they learn to compare and contrast. Graphic organizers can be used during instruction to help organize information and also as prewriting tools. The provided Chart, Compare, and Contrast form will work for both activities. You can use this format to help your English language learners organize information presented to them during a lesson or that they read on their own. In addition, the Chart, Compare, and Contrast visual should be very helpful as students learn to write a paragraph that compares or contrasts two items, people, events, stories, or processes.
