He then lived in Paris for several years and became so fluent in the language that he got a master’s degree and then a Ph.D in French from Yale in 1973. He taught French at the college level for many years . His arrival in Boston, he met James Marshall, whose art and friendship inspired Allard’s first book “ The Stupids Step Out”. This successful collaboration paid the way for the publication of other Stupids books and the Miss Nelson Series. Miss Nelson is Missing was voted one of the most memorable books of the century .

Michael will go to the students and say “ Miss Nelson is missing and I will be telling you how it all started”. Also Michael , Yolanda and Janet will say what there character will be saying in the book. After the story ends, we will get two kids in front of the class and have the rest of the other kids and ask them to compare and contrast the kids standing in front of the class, So later on they will be able to compare Miss Nelson and Miss Swamp.

Just like in the story , whe Miss Nelson was pretending to be Miss Swamp. </li></ul>

  12. 12. Interview How do you teach compare and contrast in your classroom? I have them compare and contrast their physical traits, with objects I also give them a Venn diagram and their H-bar. What do you find difficult about teaching compare and contrast? The most difficult part would be that students need to be able to identify the text before they can compare and contrast it. What advice would you give us when teaching compare and contrast ? I would have two students come up to the front of the classroom with sticky-note and let them be teacher and let them compare two people and let them teach other
  13. 13. Skill Lesson Frame <ul><li>The Skill lesson I worked on today was compare & Contrast.

In order to Im prove I will need to put close attention to details to the story . </li></ul><ul><li>One more thing I want you to know is that the Venn Diagram is not the only graph you can use. </li></ul>
