COMPARISON

Support and Organization
Compare/Contrast Essays can be
organized
in one of two ways:
POINT BY POINT
: organizes by presenting one point of comparison/contrast about both subjects, then moving to the next point.
WHOLE TO WHOLE
: (also known as Subject by Subject) organizes by presenting all the points for comparison/contrast on one subject, and then presenting all the points for the other subject.
*Consider which type of organization will best explain to your reader the similarities and differences between your subjects.
private vs. public transport
Wii sports vs. real sports
being rich vs. being famous
Let's try organizing an essay outline with both POINT BY POINT and WHOLE BY WHOLE using this sample topic:

2 --> Create a tentative thesis

3 --> Organize points
