Compare And Contrast Reading Passages

Comparing and contrasting activities practice analyzing how objects, ideas, or texts are alike and/or different. For example, comparing and contrasting an event in a biography of a person versus those in the person's autobiography helps to understand how a person personally views the event as opposed to how that person is viewed by the outside world as an actor in the event.
