PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a simple and effective two-column chart that requires students to closely read and compare elements of two different texts. Right now, the default textual elements are those one would find in a nonfiction/informational text:

⇨Thesis
⇨Evidence Used
⇨Intended Audience
⇨Style
⇨Organization

⇨As students read (or after), they should record information in both columns along with supporting quotes as textual evidence. Under the chart are two questions that ask students to consider and elaborate on the most significant similarities and differences between the two texts.

⇨Note that you can easily add whichever textual elements you like, both for fiction (character, setting, mood, etc.) and nonfiction works. This is great for encouraging the type of deep, critical thought and close reading that the Common Core Standards require. This is great for AP Language and Lit. classes as well!
