Teaching Strategies for Museums: Compare and Contrast
Compare and Contrast is a strategy to help students analyze similarities and differences. Applied to museum exhibitions and resources, comparisons can be made between distinctly different or closely related primary sources; between familiar and unfamiliar sources; or between concrete examples and abstract concepts. Another approach is to look at one thing from the perspectives of different disciplines. From Smithsonian Source, Teaching with Primary Sources website. 2005.
