Our Compare/Contrast Themes, etc. – Same Author lesson plan teaches students how to identify themes and then compare and contrast them with the themes in other works by the same author.
During this lesson, students are asked to practice writing their own short stories with some similar and some different elements and then fill out a chart mapping the themes, setting, and more to help them compare and contrast. Students are also asked to read and compare other author’s works.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters.
