A: Identify at least two elements of an effective compare/contrast essay. Explain how would you utilize these elements in a essay. [ How do these elements help in persuading the reader that the comparison has merit? answer The introduction of the comparison and contrast paper should cover the main point that you will be discussing. Explain to the audience what you will be comparing and
contrasting, and what the purpose of the comparison and contrast is. The introduction should also have a strong thesis statement. The thesis statement should overview the key similarities and the key differences between the two items. It may also explain the significance of the differences and similarities. For example, "Majoring in psychology and sociology both lead to careers that study people and how they think and interact. However, majoring in psychology allows students to help people directly through therapy and counseling services." Comparison Section The first section of the essay should compare the two or more items being discussed. Provide details about the key similarities and use descriptive detail and examples to illustrate your points. For example, when comparing a psychology major with a sociology major, you might give specific details about how the degree plans are similar, using actual examples of courses included in the majors from your university's student handbook. You might also explain how the sequence of required courses are similar by including a side-by-side comparison of.the courses students in each major take during specific years of their degree programs. Contrast Section After you have explained the similarities, you should explain the main differences between the items. Like the comparison section, you should use actual examples and provide enough detail so the audience can follow the logic of your contrast section. For the psychology and sociology majors example, you might explain the differences between the goals of each of the programs. ]
