Reflection: Rigor Homologous Structures: Evidence for Evolution - Section 4: Elaborate

 

Identifying similarities and differences is one of the nine high yield instructional strategies identified by Robert Marzano. There are a number of ways to make this experience occur. Students can use graphic organizers, brainstorm, make analogies, categorize, sort, create metaphors, compare. All of these are relatively simple strategies for the teacher, and present thinking opportunities for students.
