Do you wonder how to organize your thoughts for a compare/contrast assignment? Record the information on a colorful Venn diagram.
What two subjects do you need to compare? They could be two stories, cultures, animals, people, or almost any other material. Read the stories or research the topic. The sample shown here compares and contrasts Shakespeare’s "Romeo and Juliet" with "West Side Story."
Draw two intersecting circles on a large dry-erase board with a Crayola Dry-Erase Marker. This is your Venn diagram template.
With your classmates, discuss the similarities and differences between the two subjects. Write the unique characteristics of one subject in the left circle in one color. Unique aspects of the other subject go in the right circle in another color. Enter all the ways the two overlap (or are similar) in the center using a third color.
After the diagram is complete, you are ready to make an original Venn diagram comparing two other topics. You are also prepared to write a well-organized compare/contrast essay.
