PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Break the structure of a five paragraph compare-contrast essay down sentence-by-sentence for your students with this essay skeleton. The general prompts are able to use with any compare-contrast five paragraph essay.

This purchase includes an essay skeleton with just the prompts (formatted two per page) and an essay skeleton with blanks. I like to handout the first version when I start a writing unit to give students an overview of what we are working towards. I use the second version for first-timers to the five paragraph structure and require students to pre-plan their essay before writing it completely.

Both documents are editable, so you can make changes as needed for your course's requirements.

With the compare-contrast format, I've found success having students highlight the template to see how evidence for the two items appear in each paragraph. I give students two different colored highlighters and have them highlight every time they find "item A" in one color and the same for "item B" in another color. I think it helps give them a visual for how this complex essay will be structured.
