INTRODUCTION TO THE ANCHOR
Anchor 9 for reading literature requires that learners compare, contrast and integrate information from different texts. To scaffold students begin in third grade by comparing characters, setting, plot from stories written by the same author. As students progress, learners will begin to explore a variation of texts to increase the rigor and connections made.
RL.3.9 Compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters (e.g., in books from a series)
RL.4.9 Compare and contrast the treatment of similar themes and topics (e.g., opposition of good and evil) and patterns of events (e.g., the quest) in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures.
RL.5.9 Compare and contrast stories in the same genre (e.g., mysteries and adventure stories) on their approaches to similar themes and topics.
RL.6.9 Compare and contrast texts in different forms or genres (e.g., stories and poems; historical novels and fantasy stories) in terms of their approaches to similar themes and topics.
