This power point will help students write a compare/contrast essay about two stories by the same author, but could be easily modified to work for any literary compare/contrast. It follows the standard writing process from pre-writing to publishing. Includes graphic organizers, outlines and sentence frames for thesis statments. Some comments by students: "I learned how to write well and now I know how to write an essay." "I appreciated how you showed us step-by-step because that is really the only way I understand." "It was really easy and unstandable about how to write an essay."
