Transcript of Comparison/contrast

(Create a T-Diagram)
Why read the paper? To inform or to persuade

What you say about one, you need to say about the other—fair and equal treatment

Point-to-Point or block

Presentation--clear transitions

The 4 P’s
You do not need to do BOTH similarities and differences—but there are very few “black and white” topics

Compare OR Contrast

Topics for Comparison/Contrast should be:

from the same family (school v. school not
school v. car)

of the same scope (Phx v. San Francisco
not Phx. v. Arizona)

complicated enough for the assignment
(no general cats vs. dogs!)

Topic Selection

Setting two objects next to one another for exploration or choice
Remember to have a purpose for the paper:

show the reader something she did not see before

or help reader choose one over the other, etc.

Compare or Contrast


Discuss each element one at a time for both sides in one paragraph

Problem: ping-pong match

Fix: transitions


Discuss all of the attributes of one side then discuss all of the same attributes for the other side in separate sections/paragraphs

Problem: two separate essays

Fix: transitions
