A strategy we can use to compare and contrast how authors approach similar themes is to think about the pivotal moments that are present throughout the book.

  • What challenges do the characters face?
  • How do characters respond to the challenges they face?
  • We can record our ideas on a chart so that it is visually easier to compare and contrast the different approaches.
