J Taylor Education’s Content Imperative Mini Student Icon Cards: Parallel

By J Taylor Education

Content Imperative Mini Student Icon Cards are an amazing tool for differentiation with the icons. Depth and Complexity Icons are the visual prompts designed to help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept while enhancing their ability to think critically. Much like the Depth & Complexity Mini Student cards, the Content Imperative mini cards also display the icon with its name clearly showing on the front of the card. The reverse of each card contains a few student-friendly definitions/synonyms with 2-3 task starter questions related to the icon pictured. These mini cards are available from J Taylor Education as a complete set.

The Parallel Icon is one of the Content Imperative Icons. It requires students to analyze the similarities (and differences) between two topics or areas of study.
