Compare and Contrast


Compare & Contrast

The student should be able to tell how topics, themes, problems, characters, or relationships in written work are alike or different.

Class review lesson:




The following video discusses comparing and contrasting when you write, but it provides a WONDERFUL explanation of not only compare and contrast and the "clue" words associated with each, but also discusses topic sentences which is critical when we are looking for the main idea! If you have to write a compare and contrast essay for your composition class this is a "must see!"
