How to teach compare and contrast essay writing at Years 10-12
June 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$150
Compare and contrast writing can easily become simplistic and formulaic. This workshop looks at activities we can use in our classroom to prevent this by:
- Using deeper thinking and analysis routines during units
- Centering activities around the analysis and discussion of ideas and concepts which link texts
- Teaching students to write about ideas and concepts which link texts
Importantly, this workshop will look at how vocabulary instruction is an essential part of any compare and contrast activity in order to prepare students to write detailed and sophisticated essays. This workshop will also look at setting students compare and contrast essay tasks, helping them plan compare and contrast essays and providing students with effective feedback.
