Our Compare/Contrast Non-Fiction Text Versions lesson plan teaches students strategies for comparing and contrasting two different texts about the same topic. During this lesson, students are asked to listen to their teacher read two paragraphs aloud and compare and contrast them as the teacher is reading; they are asked to list the information that is found in only one paragraph as well as the information that is found in both. Students are also asked to compare and contrast two passages using a Venn Diagram.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare and contrast the most important points presented by two texts on the same topic.
