– 5 PARAGRAPHS
-In your comparison you will
look at the similarities and differences between the two source materials through multiple comparison points (themes). The central question of the assignment is “How are these sources similar and different in regards to the main ideas, points, and themes that are illuminated in each source?” Your thesis will answer that question
and you will support your thesis.
– A Compare and Contrast Analysis asks you to
focus on the themes presented in multiple
texts and evaluate the similarities and
differences between each source and the
impact of those similarities and differences on
the meanings or outcomes of the sources.
Remember, the Compare and Contrast essay
goes beyond your personal feelings about a
text
– having a central theme or thesis.
– Having well developed thoughts that are not simply a recounting of what took place in the text.
– The use of evidence to support your points in a well-developed body paragraph or paragraphs.
– Proper grammar, punctuation and MLA format.
