You can be pretty creative when writing a compare and contrast essay. Some of the essay ideas below may seem to contain subjects that have nothing in common. But think again! You’ll find contrasting characteristics as well as similar characteristics in each individual set.
Introduction. This paragraph give us the main information about subjects that will be compared and contrasted. In addition, write about direction of the essay.
Once all major points of comparison/ contrast have been listed, one should concentrate on the main aim of the comparison/contrast assignment. On this stage of the writing process you should have a clear idea of the purpose of this essay.
Toads and frogs have the same way to catch and eat food. Both of them use their tongue to and gulp down the prey. But a frog has a crest of very small cone teeth around the upper jaw edge to seize the food, but a toad doesn’t have any teeth at all. They eat almost same foods as frogs like bugs insects, fish, etc.
And note the following words and phrases that can be used to make a comparison more precise (Jordan 6999) :
Speech functions are less likely to be affected in women because the critical area is less often affected. A similar pattern emerges in studies of the control of hand movements.
One of the most effective ways of comparison/contracting techniques is the drawing of Venn diagram. Drawing this diagram allows you to compare and contrast two or even several things/events. To design a Venn diagram, draw several overlapping circles, each should represent some event or idea that you research. In the space of overlapping, write down the similarities, which two objects have. In the space that does not overlap, list the features that make things/events different.
“In conclusion, these three aspects clearly show how Molly and Morgan go about their doggy lives in different ways. While Molly likes to accessorize with baseball caps, cuddle with stuffed animals, and sit around looking bored, Morgan prefers rawhide bones, relaxing solo, and sleeping contently whenever she can.”
Your goal is to make a simple list of comparable characteristics for both of your subjects. You may want to add a statement column in your chart/list to explain why items are similar or very different. Below you can see an example of a short list comparing ebooks with traditional books.
You need to regularize your ideas and note them down. A &ldquo Venn diagram&rdquo will assist you to find differences and similarities. These overlapping circles will make writing a comparative essay much easier. You just need to note in the middle area things, which are alike and on the edges take down what is different. The other way to regularize your ideas is just take a shit of paper and write similarities on the right side and differences on the other side.
