Compare and Contrast with T-Charts

By Natasha Lupiani

Comparing and contrasting items allows our students to practice thinking analytically. They have to figure out how the items are the same (compare) and how they are different (contrast). The ability to think also aligns with the basic concept of Common Core, which is ensuring our students are learning by process rather than just memorizing. Many of us are familiar with the Venn Diagram model for comparing and contrasting. Storyboard That took that model and adapted the compare and contrast concept to work with the storyboard approach using a T-Chart.
