Compare/Contrast Group Prewriting Exercise. Before my students write a compare and contrast essay, I have them do the following exercise in groups. It's a lot of fun and gives them a template for writing about their own topics after the activity.
This activity demystifies the process and structure for a compare/contrast essay. I usually get the best essay results of the quarter after using this exercise.
