Adolescent Literacy Series: Comparative Reading

Language arts teachers told us, “One of the biggest challenges for kids is learning how to compare texts." 

That’s why we created Adolescent Literacy: Comparative Reading (formerly known as "Critical Literacy").  Struggling readers can, and do, read. Their problem is understanding and processing the ideas behind the words. Adolescent Literacy: Comparative Reading includes direct, explicit instruction in skills that are essential to literacy.

The 20 lessons highlight strategies for analyzing and comparing different texts and their elements.  With passages that will interest a diverse student population, Adolescent Literacy: Comparative Reading is designed to be used flexibly, with individual students or groups. 

Sample topics include:

  • "Making Connections to Real Life"
  • "Mostly the Same or Mostly Different?"
  • "Dear Editor"
  • "How Is One Poem Like Another?"
  • "Same Place, Different Map"

Each lesson takes 20–50 minutes to complete, addresses IRA/NCTE and McREL standards, and comes with teaching tips, instructional guides, assessment suggestions, and more.
