Pairing Texts to Enhance Instruction

When instructors use paired texts, they have the opportunity to expand students’ content knowledge, increase their reading comprehension, and develop their critical thinking skills.

When instructors use paired texts, they have the opportunity to expand students’ content knowledge, increase their reading comprehension, and develop their critical thinking skills. Using paired texts promotes higher-order thinking when students are asked to compare literary elements, analyze how texts are transformed, and compare text structures. During this workshop, participants explore the English Standards for each grade level and consider seven purposes for pairing texts. For each of the seven purposes, the presenter will provide applicable lesson plans and activities. After the lesson plans and resources are explored, the audience will consider how they could use paired texts to enhance instruction.
