The HOT SOLO Compare and Contrast Map and self assessment rubric are used to identify similarities and differences between objects or ideas.

How do I use it?

1. Align the effective strategy (HOT SOLO Compare and Contrast Map) with the learning intention. For example, we are learning to compare and contrast [content] [context].

2. Identify the ideas to be compared and contrasted (X and Y) and place each in the middle boxes.

3. List similarities between the two main ideas and place them in the area between the two main ideas.

4. Look at the main ideas separately. List the differences between X and Y and place them to the left of X. List the differences between Y and X and place them to right of Y.

5. Use speech bubbles to explain these similarities and differences. E.g. “They are different because …”

6. Make a generalisation about the similarities and differences between the two ideas. E.g. Overall I think X and Y are more similar than they are different, because …. because …”

7. Share the success criteria for comparison in the HOT SOLO compare and contrast rubric.

8. With reference to the success criteria, students create a comparative statement using relevant similarities and differences and the target vocabulary from the completed HOT SOLO compare and contrast map. These statements can be written, oral or an annotated drawing. This process is iterative and can be repeated whenever new learning occurs enabling the comparative statements to be improved.

9. Students self assess/peer assess and seek teacher feedback on their comparative statements.

10. Students assess their learning outcome for the identified learning intention against the SOLO levels, explain why they have chosen this level of learning outcome for their work (feedback) and suggest where to next steps (feed up).

11. Record this in a student learning log.
