Comparing and Contrasting in Nonfiction: Biography, Autobiography, and Memoir

Comparing and Contrasting in Nonfiction: Biography, Autobiography, and Memoir

Use this two-page graphic organizer to help students compare and contrast informational narratives from two different genres. With this worksheet, learners will get first-hand experience examining the differences between biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs as they read about people like Roald Dahl, Ruby Bridges, Malala Yousafzai, or another person of their choosing. In addition to tracking the similarities and differences between types of texts, students will answer deeper analysis questions that require them to think critically about author's purpose and reliability of a text, while also exploring point of view, theme, and other key sixth-grade reading comprehension skills.
