Nonfiction Texts: Comparing and Contrasting

Nonfiction Texts: Comparing and Contrasting

Host a family movie night! Afterwards, discuss the movie's themes, comparing and contrasting aspects of the film. What did your child observe? What inferences did they make as they watched? Conversations like this can prepare your child to apply these same critical thinking skills to their reading.
Use graphic organizers and visual guides to support your students as they compare and contrast information from nonfiction texts. This is especially important when students are inferring relationships between ideas or subtopics. Once students have recorded information in an organizer, they will be prepared to have conversations about their inferences and observations. Be sure to model this process for your students by working though a sample text with them.
