1.6 Compare and Contrast

Compare and Contrast

Writing to compare and contrast is an important skill. If you can compare and contrast two topics, you can demonstrate your understanding of them.

Here is a template for brainstorming ideas in a compare and contrast essay.

A compare and contrast essay should be structured like this:

I. Introduction: Introduce your topic.

II. Similarities: Three or so similarities.

III. Differences: Three or so differences.

IV. Conclusion: Summarize your main points.

Directions: Write a compare and contrast essay of your own.

As homework, select another topic for compare and contrast, use MyndBook ( to create a note map of your ideas including similarities and differences between the two ideas; and then write your essay.
