This might be a question, a reason people find the topic interesting or important, or something the two subjects have in common. Then name the two subjects and say they are very similar, very different or have many important (or interesting) similarities and differences. Paragraph 2--20 sentences The next paragraph(s) describe features of the first subject. Be sure to include examples proving the similarities and/or differences exist. Do not mention the second subject. Make new paragraphs to avoid very long paragraphs. Paragraph 3--20 sentences The next section must begin with a transition showing you are comparing the second subject to the first. For each comparison, use compare/contrast cue words such as like, similar to, also, unlike, on the other hand. Be sure to include examples proving the similarities and/or differences exist. Make new paragraphs to avoid very long paragraphs. Conclusion In the final paragraph, give a brief, general summary of the most important similarities and differences.
