Give your students the tools they need to create well-thought-out comparison and contrast essays that go beyond a simple list of similarities and differences to an understanding of how the context of the comparison reveals the relationships between the subjects. Areas covered in the 40-page Power Point presentation
are as follows:
• purposes of comparison
• choosing a topic
• gathering evidence
• formulating a thesis
• getting organized.
There is a section on analogy and how using it achieves more interesting, thoughtful writing. Also included are a blank Venn diagram and a comparison/contrast chart as well as exercises that give students practice in formulating thesis statements, in determining if a comparison is fair, on evaluating a comparison, in using transitions, and in organizing a comparison and contrast essay.
