COMPARING

(COMPARATIVE QUESTION)

By Monica Bond-Lamberty


To compare
TO COMPARE

Comparing means finding the similarities AND the differences.

  • Similarities are things that are the same for the two items being compared

  • Differences are things that differ for the two items being compared


First know your topic
FIRST – KNOW YOUR TOPIC

  • You need to know about each item that you are comparing to be able to compare and contrast them fully.


What are they
WHAT ARE THEY?

Figure out what classification applies to both items (country, religion, empire, social structure, labor system, constitutions, etc.) because you cannot use this as a similarity.

  • For example if you are asked to compare an apple and an orange, as they are both fruit you cannot use that as a similarity.

  • Likewise if you are comparing the Haitian and French revolutions, you cannot use the fact that they are both revolutions as a similarity.


Describe each list characteristics
DESCRIBE EACH – List Characteristics

  • Inedible Peel Edible Peel

PICK YOUR 3 STRONGEST COMPARISONS – NEED AT LEAST 1 SIMILARITY & A DIFFERENCE

  • Pick your 3 (at least) strongest bases of comparison for your thesis statement. (These will often be the broadest and most universal categories.) The characteristics become your supporting evidence in the body of your essay (appearance, taste, internal structure).


Write your comparisons
WRITE YOUR COMPARISONS

  • Write a similarity and a difference (two sentences max ideally) for apples and oranges.

  • These should be sentences that would be a topic sentence, so statements that can be elaborated upon further in your paragraph.
