The Compare & Contrast Map is a template for creating a comparative essay. Using the template YOU are guided through writing three styles of comparison essays. To get started YOU identify two things that YOU wish to compare and or contrast. Then YOU choose if YOU want to write a "whole to whole" essay, a "similarities to differences" essay, or a "point to point" essay. Whichever essay type YOU choose, YOU are guided through the types of information YOU should put in each part of YOUR essays. WhenYOUR essays are complete YOU can share them via email or print them.
