In our Comparing Literature lesson plan, students will develop and strengthen their analytical and critical thinking skills by analyzing two texts to compare and contrast them using Venn Diagrams. During this lesson, students are asked to read two texts, compare and contrast them, and answer questions about them. Students are also asked to answer questions about how and why we would want to compare and contrast texts to demonstrate their understanding of the importance of the lesson.

Great resource

I love the fact that this lesson included multiple passages that could be used to model, guide, and as independent work. A quiz is also included to check for understanding. One stop shop, I love it.
