Our Compare and Contrast – Nonfiction lesson plan teaches students strategies for effectively comparing and contrasting nonfiction texts. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to fill in a Venn diagram about two texts and then answer questions about the texts. Students are also asked to identify whether statements are likely from a firsthand or secondhand account, demonstrating that they understand the difference.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event or topic; describe the differences in focus and the information provided.
