Compare & Contrast
Welcome Compare & Contrast
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.
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.
