Comparison and Contrast Essay Writing Assignment

A comparison shows how two or more things are similar, and contrast shows how they are different. Before you can compare and contrast two things, you must be sure a basis for comparison exists–that the two things have enough in common to justify the comparison. A comparison should lead you beyond the obvious. However, when two things are very similar, the contrast maybe worth writing about. When two subjects are not much alike, you may find that the similarities are worth considering.
