Steps for Analogies Strategy1. Select a concept familiar to the students

that is analogous in certain ways to the new concept.

2. Introduce a blank analogy graphic organizer (or table). Label the new concept in the left column and familiar concept in the right column.

3. Brainstorm similar characteristics of the two concepts and write those in the correct column.

4. After the lesson students revisit the graphic organizer, adding or revising the information.

5. Students write a summary describing the new concept using the information on the organizer.
