Compare and Contrast: Reading and Writing Thinglink

January 10, 2015

Compare and COntrast.001
Students could benefit with more practice in using the compare and contrast strategy when reading. I have found that they can compare and contrast characters, but sometimes find it more difficult to compare and contrast story plots, settings, or themes.
In order to help students write a compare and contrast essay, I believe they need to be given the time to verbalize and discuss the comparisons before they write. This verbalization reinforces the need to be more descriptive and build more details. It also helps to make them more aware of the sequencing that is required when writing the comparison.
The Thinglink I compiled includes: strategies for comparing and contrasting in reading, and also for writing a compare and contrast essay, tutorials, interactive samples, interactive Venn-diagrams, and interactive writing.
