Objectives: Great readers can articulate how an author strategically uses compare and contrast examples to explain new information to a reader.
In this lesson plan, students are introduced to compare and contrast text structure through guided notes. There is then a teacher model on how to identify non-fiction compare and contrast text structure. There is then a guided practice where the students will work in pairs to prove that the text is compare and contrast. For the exit ticket, students will read an article comparing baseball stadiums and will answer an open response question.
