By Marcia S. Freeman. Step-by-step lesson plans are embedded in a highly detailed curriculum plan that shows teachers how to build explicit student skills progressively—from identifying attributes, to comparing the attributes, to composing a comparative paragraph, to organizing a whole comparison paper. Reproducible handouts support the lessons. Grades 4–10. 8½" x 11". Maupin House. 90 pages. ©2006.

“…a resource especially for teachers instructing students in grades 4–10 in the fine art of writing. Crafting Comparison Papers offers lessons to aid students in learning how to create papers that describe both similarities and differences – a skill that will prove invaluable for both higher education and career-related writing. Lessons with specific ‘Target Skills’ to support student progress, guidelines for assessing student writing, recommendations for helping students learn how to organize a comparison paper and much more fill this solid supplementary tool, highly recommended for middle, junior high, and high school English teachers as well as homeschooling instructors.”—The Midwest Book Review

“The opportunity to incorporate the writing of comparison papers arises frequently across the curriculum…Marcia Freeman makes the point that, as is the case in all aspects of teaching the craft of writing, teaching the craft of comparison must be explicit.”—Teaching K–8 Magazine
