Compare OR contrast two people, animals or situations. Make sure you have a CONTROLLING IDEA, one that consists of two parts: happy/sad, extrovert/introvert, etc. Your subject i.e. My sisters, my dogs, etc. is not your controlling idea. The controlling idea says something about your subject. Support the controlling ideas with three examples/situations that illustrate it. Be careful you do not introduce another controlling idea as a supporting point. These supporting points should be concrete, not abstract.
LENGTH: 600 to 800 words STRUCTURE: Use the point-by-point format (to emphasize individual points) or block format (to emphasize the whole picture). Use the same points for each half of the contrast. SENTENCES: Use concrete words and vary sentence structure using the ones discussed in class. Create images. OUTLINE: Include an informal outline that includes your subject, controlling idea and three supporting points. Font: Times New Roman Size: 12 Spacing: 1.5 Indent paragraphs. NO double spacing between paragraphs.
