TASK 19. Comparative Analysis

This task can help studentss develop the skills to effectively compare and contrast two texts. Teachers should provide students with a frame of reference; something specific that both texts relate to and fuel the comparison. Students should be able to explain why the two texts are right for the task and create a thesis that explains the relationship between the two texts (for example, do they contradict each other, or extend, or debate, and so on). This task can be used to compare either text structure or content.
