User Comments

Excellent close read

I like both of the activities mentioned about graphic organizer for mood and setting and the compare and contrast essay for both mood or setting.

I appreciate the paired text

I used the pictures as a Visual Thinking Strategy before moving into the text.

Thanks for posting. This is a good high interest article.

Cannot find a Teacher Guide and Answers for the Paired Text Questions. " The Life Line" and "A Huntsman And Dogs."

Thanks for posting. At this point in time, we do not provide the answer keys for the paired texts. As you know, we are committed to providing the highest quality, research-based content, and providing educators with more and more of it. In order to provide the most value to educators and their students, we felt it was more important to write more paired texts and the questions than writing the answers at this point in time. We wish we could do everything at once, but it will take some time. It is our intention to provide answers for the paired text questions, but we cannot give you a definitive time frame as to when this will happen.

I copied the idea of using a graphic organizer for mood and setting. This was a great station for students after receiving a series of lessons using a graphic organizer to discuss mood and setting.

Thanks!

I created a graphic organizer placing the two paintings side by side. Text boxes were inserted for setting and mood. My students will be able to use this information to write a "compare and contrast" essay.

This is so great!
