How to Write a Comparison and Contrast Essay

There are two ways to organize a comparison and contrast paper.

One way is by following a subject-by-subject pattern.

The other is by following a point-by-point pattern.

subject by subject pattern
Subject-by-Subject Pattern

*The subject-by-subject pattern allows the writer to compare or contrast the two subjects by describing all aspects about one subject and then describing all aspects about the other subject.

Example:

Subject A—McDonalds

Point 1—flavor

Point 2—service

Point 3—environment

Subject B—Burger King

Point 1—flavor

Point 2—service

Point 3—environment

point by point pattern
*Point-by-Point Pattern
  • The point-by-point pattern allows the writer to compare or contrast the two subjects on one point and then the next point and so on.
  • Example:
  • Point 1—Flavor
  • Subject A—McDonalds
  • Subject B—Burger King
  • Point 2—Service
  • Subject A—McDonalds
  • Subject B—Burger King
  • Point 3—Environment
  • Subject A—McDonalds
  • Subject B—Burger King
