Lesson 5: Compare and contrast settlers

Lesson 5: Compare and contrast settlers

Students reread “Settlers Move West” and “Many Stay in America” and analyze the text for words which signal relationships. They compare and contrast the settlers and explain how the signal words support the development of a main idea of the two chapters. Students also compare how the settlers are similar to and different from the speaker of "The Happy Wanderer."
