This three page worksheet packeet leads a student through the process of comparison and contrast writing. The first page focuses on comparing two television shows by creating a chart to identify qualities to compare followed by the step-by-step process of writing a comparison paragraph. The third page is the same process of chart building leading into paragraph writing with a contrast format. In this page of the packet students contrast two family members. Instead of including a worksheet fill-in for this paragraph, students are now on their own to write the paragraph using the previous comparison paragraph template as a guide. Students are really engaged in this writing process. I taught the contrast skill on day one with the compare skill on day 2. Students loved creating these paragraphs because of the relevance to their lives or current culture. According to research conducted in my high school, 75% of our 9th and 10th grade students were unable to define the words "compare" and "contrast" separately. Because they struggle with the concept of only comparing or only contrasting, this was a very effective lesson to prepare students for essay questions or prompts that deal with only one of the two requirements.
