In this document, you will find three model essays—theme, author’s craft, and compare-contrast—as well as a reference for the many different ways to organize a compare-contrast essay. I have used Ray Bradbury’s short story “All Summer in a Day” and Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” for content.
Use these essays as models for deconstruction so that students can visualize how the body paragraphs support the thesis. NOTE: I have used single space format to reduce the number of pages a teacher would have to copy, yet I realize that finals are completed in double space format.
