A Guide To Compare And Contrast Analysis Essay Writing


There are different kinds of writings that you will come across as a student and each of them comes with its requirements. A common type of essay that you will need to write is the compare and contrast analysis essay. In this kind of writing, you are supposed to focus on the way in which something such as ideas or things are similar or different from one another. When your instructor gives you this kind of essay, he needs you to think critically and consider more than just a summary or description so as to come up with an interesting analysis. By reflecting on the differences and similarities, it is possible to get a deeper understanding of the things that you are going to compare, how they relate to one another and the most important thing about them.

How to recognize this kind of essay

There are some essays that will require you to compare, contrast, and give differences or similarities. This automatically tells you that what your instructor wants you to do is to compare and contrast. There are some topics that will require you to compare while other may ask for contrast. There are still others that require both.

However, it can be challenging to determine whether an essay is a compare and contrast essay. This situation is made worse by the fact that there are instances when the compare and contrast will only be part of your essay. You are supposed to start by comparing or/and contrasting 2 or more things before making an evaluation or argument.

Compare and contrast for different kinds of projects

There are moments when you will be required to compare and contrast in a pre-writing task so as to have ideas that you can use for the argument. This despite the fact that compare and contrast may not be officially required by a paper.

Discover differences and similarities

One of the best way of handling a compare and contrast essay is by creating a Venn chart or diagram to help you compare and contrast two different things in an efficient and quick way. You can draw a venn diagram by drawing some two overlapping circles. One circle should be for the similarities while the other should be for the differences. With these tips, it is easy to write a compare and contrast analysis essay.
