Mini-Lesson- 

 

Making comparisons between texts can be tricky, but not impossible-

Think of The Jordan IX’s and The Jordan IV’s- they’re both Jordans.

The Jordan XII’s and Adidas shell-tops? they’re both sneakers.

 

Making a comparison between two texts-

1– write the names of the two texts, authors and what they have in common.

2-  quote from one text and explain what it means.

3- quote from other text, explain it and how it’s compare to the first text.

5 minutes- Rewrite your opening using these steps.
