The introduction is the first impression that the reader has of the rest of the essay. A well formulated introduction will entice the reader to read on. It serves as a road map for the rest of.
Hi Melissa- Thanks for your comments! I have tons of mentor texts suggestions in my Character Pack. Here is the link if you 8767 d like to check it out: https:///Product/Analyzing-Characters-Pack-Common-Core-Aligned-656566. Have a great day!
7) Create an effective thesis statement. Again, you need to say why the comparison and contrast is worthy of note. Let’s say you want to compare and contrast the heroines of Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. Your thesis might be this: “Although Elizabeth Bennet and Jane Eyre are very different on the outside, their shared internal values connects them in literary history and in the fight for women’s rights.” Now you have a reason for your efforts and a compelling case for your audience’s attention.
Background: The compare/contrast writing format is one of the most common forms you will encounter in your academic careers. Moreover, being able to think in this form helps you to make all kinds of important decisions in your life what things to buy, what college to attend, which boy or girl to date, what kind of pet to get the list is endless.

I 8767 m back for the next part of our character development lesson using Verdi by Janell Cannon. For this lesson, I will be sharing how we used the book to compare and contrast two or more characters in a story, drawing on specific details from the text.
9) How to decide on a pattern. While there is no rule about selecting one method over another, for longer papers (those that exceed five or six pages) you should probably go with the alternating pattern. It is hard for the reader to retain all the pertinent information about each side of your argument in lengthier discussions. For shorter papers, the tandem pattern will probably be the best bet.
6) So they’re alike and they’re different. So what? A good paper will not simply offer a summary of themes, characters, or plot. Your job is to think about how these comparisons and contrasts create meaningful connections to a larger issue.
By asking students if they can name common themes in literature, the teacher will be able to gauge students' understanding of theme and their familiarity with various themes. If there is not a large outpouring, then the teacher will have to spend time identifying and reviewing themes in familiar stories that students have read. If there are many correct responses, then the teacher can move directly to "The Story of Wang Li" and "The Enchanted Sticks" to determine the themes of those stories.
7) Include your own voice. One of the biggest challenges for a writer is to offer his or her own take on a topic. You may feel that everyone else has already said everything there is to say about your subject. Don’t be discouraged! Your own interpretation is what is most valuable in the end.
After students have worked together citing details about the characters on section I of their graphic organizer , the teacher will circulate and look at their organizers to assess the success of their efforts to come up with similarities and differences between the two men in section II. This will indicate the proper level of intervention needed, whether it is simply meeting with a group that is struggling or providing whole-class intervention if there is widespread difficulty.
