      The Comparison-Contrast Essay
    • The Comparison-Contrast Essay. Prof. Julia I. Martínez
      It is an essay that analyses the similarities and/or differences between two items
      Sometimes, the writer includes at the end an opinion or evaluation about them (e.g., A is better than B)
      Usually, the purpose is not simply to point out similarities and differences, but to persuade, explain or inform.

      The block method
