Monster: Compare and Contrast

Helpful for a unit on Walter Dean Myers' Monster, or any novel that you are teaching, a graphic organizer prompts learners to compare and contrast different character traits. The first box has one set of lines to jot down what two characters have in common, while the second part of the worksheet provides two boxes to describe how they are different.
