The Goal:  


Use your Venn diagram to complete a writing scaffold.  A writing scaffold helps you develop your idea and organize your writing.  When you have a completed writing scaffold, you will be ready to create a rough draft. 

Do you remember your essential question?  

Use this topic sentence in your writing scaffold:   My best friend _____ and I share similarities and differences that make our friendship unique.  

Feel free to write your own topic sentence, if you wish.


1.  Make a copy of this Google document.    Don't know how to make a copy?  Check out "How do I...?" on the right.

  • Call your copy, " [My name] writing scaffold for compare & contrast writing All-at-Once"

2.  Watch this how-to video to see how the Compare & Contrast "All-at-Once" writing scaffolds are used.   Use your copy of the document to follow along.

3Review the instructions on your copy of the document.  You will use the blank writing scaffold on the last page of your document for your assignment. 

4.  When you complete your writing scaffold, submit a sharable link below.
