The Making Connections Across Genres Depth Guide is a graphic organizer that will allow students in grades 3-6 to compare and contrast 2 reading selections to the depth and rigor of the STAAR in Texas. The guide allows students to compare and contrast:
Identify similarities between ideas, events, characters, or lessons
This guide works well with any selections in similar or different genres. To use, pair this guide with 2 selections. As a suggestion, pair students up and make each student responsible for making a connection with their given selection. Then, students should complete any questions with the selection.
If you are looking for more depth than just practice questions before the STAAR, this is great for test prep.
Coming Soon: Poetry, Drama, folktale, and literary non-fiction.
