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
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!)
Setting two objects next to one another for exploration or choice
Remember to have a purpose for the paper:
show the readers something they didn’t 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
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
Organization of essay
Fair and Equal Treatment
what is explored about one "side" must be explored about the other
Points to Consider
Each point is current,
1. distance traveled
4. snacks and amenities
6. color scheme/decor
9. sound system
at home or in theater
