Product Description
Great tool for RI/RL.7.9! Graphic organizer to help students compare and contrast two documents for their main ideas and author's purpose. RL7.9 asks students to "compare and contrast a fictional portrayal of a time, place or character and a historical account of the same period." I could not find ANY resources for this as I was planning last year (RL6.9 and 8.9 are distinctly different- this is the only year kids have to do this for some reason but you can still use this for comparing two texts.) I used this for teaching Laurie Halse Anderson's novel Chains and several topical historical pieces about witchcraft, Thomas Hickey, etc. To make this easier for students, have them put a quote from the text that best answers the question; once they can do that, have them put it in their own words. I have the students read the source a couple times- the first time through they just do the 'who what where' and GIST (a one-sentence summary). It also helps to have them preread the questions in the graphic organizer so they know what they are doing. We had 80 minute classes last year and it took a whole class to read 2 sources- these are tough questions and historical stuff is not speed-reading material so take your time!
