•1st paragraph--Intro: Write about bias in books. What are some types of bias books can have? Write about how bias has changed over the years.
•First Two Body paragraphs: Each book could have their own paragraph. Briefly tell us about the story, and then tell us some of the biases you saw in the book. Use your handout as a guide.
•In the third body paragraph compare the two books. Did you see any changes (related to bias) from the early book to the more recent one?
