Compare and contrast writing

Compare and Contrast Writing

Why compare characters?


Compare look at similarities between things
Compare = Look at similarities between things

  • Compare things that seem otherwise dissimilar

  • By comparing things that are not usually seen as being similar, we can find interesting things that we might not have noticed at first glance.

  • Comparing helps a write to go beyond summary and into analysis.


What does this venn diagram show about the similarities between jesus and dracula
What does this Venn diagram show about the similarities between Jesus and Dracula?

Does this suggest they are the same- certainly not.

What is does it does show is a unique way of viewing both subjects.

How does this compare to proctor
How does this compare to Proctor? diagram

  • Make a similar list for John Proctor and see if you can connect the two lists.

  • What surprising connections do you see?

  • What are the central points of difference? You can start with the little things: one is a reverend and one is a farmer. Then, go DEEPER to examine the motives and choices they make. Analyze their “character qualities” or “character flaws”.
