The Goal: 

 

We are going to turn our attention to a new paragraph format.  Compare & Contrast writing allows you to see a relationship between two or more things.  Once you have learned about this type of writing, you will use it to construct a new writing piece.

Introduction

When we read, we compare & contrast without even knowing it.  When we write, we have to think a bit harder, as we must "show" our audience the relationship.

 

Watch the video below as an introduction to compare & contrast.  Then, when you understand the basic idea, continue on.
