Paired Books Tips

Promote higher-order thinking, such as making comparisons among texts, with Paired Books, which features three types of pairings: fiction-nonfiction, fiction-fiction, and nonfiction-nonfiction. Students first answer text-dependent questions about each text separately, and then about both texts combined. Answers to these questions guide student response to an overall key question.

Each lesson has a graphic organizer used to record information related to each question set. Students cite evidence in support of an answer.
