Moving in With Dad: Comparing Two Teens' Stories
How do separation and divorce affect teenagers and change parent-child relationships? In this lesson, students compare two short texts, both about teens leaving their mothers to live with their fathers. They compare these two texts by placing them "in conversation" with one another and completing a Venn diagram. Finally, students write an essay about the similarities and differences they see in these pieces.
