Transcript of Compare Contrast Lesson 5th Grade

First Reading: "Encounter" The lesson began by introducing that we would be reading two texts about Christopher Columbus. The students shared their knowledge of his place in history, and then we went in to reading "Encounter." The book is very dramatic and brings emotion to it's reader. The book is told from the standpoint of a Taino Indian young boy's point-of-view, recounting the landing of Columbus on the island of San Salvador in 1492. Two Texts "Encounter" by Jane Yolen RI 5.6 Analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent. Second Reading:
"Examining the Reputation of Christopher Columbus" We then read the article by Jack Weatherford together. This article is written by an anthropologist who clearly has very strong feelings about the lack of information told in our history about the encounters with Christopher Columbus. After reading, we discussed the following guiding questions. Compare and Contrast Chart The students then worked together to create a chart that focused on showing the similarities and differences between the texts. The focus was on point-of-view and how that changed the key points and the way the text was presented to us. Individual Page This lesson can easily be done in any setting, whole, small, or individually based. We chose to do these particular readings for a whole group lesson. We used the same graphic organizer below, but made them on our chart paper or smart board. Presented by: Hamerle, Porter, & Rhea Compare and Contrast

What evidence from the text gives it the "tone?"
Did the other reading have this same tone?
