Blog 1.5 — Making Connections (Comparison-Contrast)

Close up of fire flames


     Read 1 John 1.  As you do, mark (in a notebook) its similarities to the cave.  Then write an OCI (Observe, Consider, Interpret) Paragraph answering the following prompt.

“What are the similarities and differences between these two stories?”


In your response,  you should 

  • Observe 
    • Start with Summary of the Story (discuss a major image, perhaps -- or a theme)
  • Consider
    • Justify your claim by making connections: beginning, middle, end.
  • Interpret
    • Make a personal connection: if these two are connected, what does it say about themes and archetypes in my life?
