Reflection: Pacing Contrasting Siblings - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


Once again, this lesson easily could be combined with yesterday’s focus of comparing. If this is not students’ first experience with compare and contrast and you have the time, then putting the two lessons together might work well in your classroom. However, I chose to separate due to time and prior experiences with contrasting not going so well. This separation allowed me to provide additional time, if needed, for scaffolding and support should the contrast portion of the two lessons went haywire!
