1. Learning ObjectiveName _____________________ Today, we will identify the compare-and-contrastpattern in informational text1. 1 (informational text) writing that gives facts CFU What are we going to do today? What is informational text? Informational text means ________________. Activate (or provide) Prior Knowledge What is the same with Snoopy and Lucky? What is different with Snoopy and Lucky? CFU Students, you already know how to find things that are same and different. We compare things that are the same, and we contrast things that are different. Today, we will identify the compare-and-contrast pattern in informational text. 4th Grade Reading Comprehension 2.1 (3Q) Identify structural patterns found in informational text (e.g., compare and contrast, cause and effect, sequential or chronological order, proposition and support) to strengthen comprehension. Lesson to be used by EDI-trained teachers only.

2. Concept Development • The compare-and-contrast pattern is writing that tells how two or more things are similar or different. • Compare means to tell how things are similar, the same, or alike. • Contrast means to tell how things are different. • Sometimes compare-and-contrast patterns use clue words: Compare-and-contrast pattern: Not an example of compare-and-contrast pattern: CFU Which example below is a comparing sentence? How do you know? Which example below is a contrasting sentence? How do you know? Frogs and toads also lay eggs to have babies. Unlike frogs that have slimy skin, toads have dry skin. Write one clue word you are not familiar with on your whiteboard. What is the difference between the example and non-example? Explain your answer. In your own words, what is a compare-and-contrast pattern? A compare-and-contrast pattern is ______. 4th Grade Reading Comprehension 2.1 (3Q) Identify structural patterns found in informational text (e.g., compare and contrast, cause and effect, sequential or chronological order, proposition and support) to strengthen comprehension.
