Routine Use

Although I have no access to students, I feel this routine would be highly valuable for teachers and students as it requires deeper thought than a Venn Diagram and is better formatted.

Using the Concept Comparison Table

If I were still teaching in a classroom, I would incorporate the use of Concept Comparison with various other Content Enhancement Routines, such as FRAME and Unit Organizer. I believe the Concept Comparison routine helps all students consider concepts that are similar, but have key differences, in an organized manner. Furthermore, I believe this would help students clarify their understanding of concepts they often get confused because of the minor, but key, details. I would also encourage my students to refer to the routine as they complete tasks throughout the given unit as well as utilize it as a study tool for future assessments.

In my current position as a secondary coach, I would introduce this routine to teachers incorporating Content Enhancement Routines into their classroom and have the discussion of when it is appropriate to use this routine with students based on the content. I would also encourage them to use this routine anytime students are asked to compare/contrast concepts within their specific content area; this will increase student familiarity with the routine and may lead to them using this informally in other content areas (if their teacher is not using this routine as well).

Using routinely

The comparison table is a great tool to use with a group of student or individually.  I have used this table with my daughter routinely to study for a few tests throughout the school year. She has been able to remember the different tribes and what attributes each has.  Great tool

I created a Comparison Table to examine the overall concept of progress monitoring.

Comparison Table Routine

My co teacher and I have used the comparison routine for several units in our Math 7 class.  We used them to compare the properties of Quadrilaterals, to compare the use of a proportion to solve for Tax, Tip, and Discount, and finally to compare an Equation and Inequalities.  We use the the Math Workshop model in class so we co constructed these routines during the "M" - Meet the Teacher portion of our workshop.  The students seemed to enjoy coming up with the like and unlike characteristics.

Using the Comparison Table

We were able to implement the Comparison Table in multiple classes for different content lessons. We have a small elective English 11 class made up of students who need more practice for the SOLs, and we have larger classes: each with approximately 27 students, some with IEPs and 504s, and also some ESL students. In our co-taught classes, sometimes my co-teacher with lead the lesson while I model filling in the boxes, and for the next lesson, we will reverse roles.
