Compare Contrast - Poems and Literature
Here are a couple of examples of good work on compare/contrast constructed responses. Note the use of comparative language to help compare pieces of text (in this case a poem with prose). Nice job Aili and Jackie :)
Paul Mauel teaches 8th grade reading and writing to the best students in the land. I write. Novels and such. (Doesn't every person or teacher have that secret wish?) I coach. Football for the most part, track, basketball, strength and speed training. I like big kahuna burgers. I think food tastes better when the kitchen is dark and the only light is from the refrigerator. I went to high school in the 208. I have an amazing family. I love the Green Bay Packers. My hobby/passion is academic research and the experiments therein.
