A Butterfly Collection: Cross Text Analysis

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly” (Buckminster Fuller). And the teaching point of this resource is that to understand as much as possible about a topic, a savvy researcher reads a variety of texts about the topic and does a cross-text analysis of the information. To practice this skill, pupils read two poems, an editorial, and an encyclopedia excerpt regarding butterflies and then fill out the cross-text analysis graphic organizer.
