Writing Your Compare/Contrast Essay
To get started writing your essay:
Remember that â€œessay startersâ€ are everywhere. If you keep a journal or diary, a simple event may unfold into an essay. Simply said, your essays may be closer than you think!
When drafting your essay:
- Develop an enticing title
- Use the introduction to pull the reader into your singular experience by setting up the problematic situation.
- Think of specific, interesting details or events to incorporate into the essay to grab the reader.
- Let the essay reflect your own voice (is your voice serious, humorous, matter-of-fact?)
- Organize the essay in a way that may capture the reader, but donâ€™t string the reader along too much with â€œnext, next, next.â€
- To avoid just telling what happens, SHOW us what happened with vivid examples and/or testimony. Make sure you take time to reflect on why this experience is significant.
- Review the grading rubric as listed on the following page.
- Choose a writing prompt as listed above on this page.
- Create a prewriting in the style of your choice for the prompt. Review the prewriting videos on the My Writing Process: Prewriting and Draft page if needed.
- Develop a draft essay according to the following formatting guidelines. Papers submitted that do not meet these formatting requirements will be returned to you ungraded.
- Minimum of 2 to 3 typed, double-spaced pages (500-600 words), Times New Roman, 12 pt font size
- MLA formatting (see the MLA Format page as needed)
- Submitted as either a .Microsoft Word doc, .or rtf file with your first and last name in the file name.
Be sure to:
- Develop your essay by comparison and contrast using the three-points-of analysis scheme
- Decide on something you care about so that the narration is a means of communicating an idea
- Include characters, conflict, sensory details as appropriate to help your essay come alive
- Create a logical sequence for your points of comparison
- Develop an enticing title
- Use the introduction to establish the situation the essay will address
- Avoid addressing the assignment directly (donâ€™t write â€œI am going to write aboutâ€¦â€ â€“ this takes the fun out of reading the work!)
- Let the essay reflect your own voice (Is your voice serious? Humorous? Matter-of-fact?)
- Avoid â€œtellingâ€ your reader about what happened. Instead, â€œshowâ€ what happens using active verbs and/or concrete and descriptive nouns and details.
- Make sure you take time to reflect on why your points are significant.
Note: If you developed your prewriting by hand on paper, scan or take a picture of your prewriting, load the image onto your computer, and then insert the image on a separate page after your draft
