Note taking is an important skill for students to learn and practice. One form of note taking is comparing and contrasting.
This note taking form invites students to think about the purpose of their notes before they begin writing. It has one side for pre-thinking and the other side is a Venn Diagram for taking notes.
Traditionally when Venn Diagrams are used we list the similarities and differences. This form challenges students to focus on three elements of the two items being compared. This will help students to focus their writings should they use their notes to type an essay comparing and contrasting the two items.
