All controversial issues will be good topics for a compare and contrast essay

When a student is asked to compare and contrast between two things, events or personalities, the paper becomes a contrast essay. Most of the times there will be two given topics that require comparison, for writing such a detailed paper. For example, tutors may require students to compare and contrast the weather conditions, prevalent at two different places in a particular country. Similarly, there could be other topics like making a contrast statement on two different movies that fall in the same category.

As this essay writing is similar to other essays, students should look at book review essay and synthesis essay before starting their work to get a better grip on the required writing skills.

Select two or more topics

When we talk about the subject of “contrast”, we should know that the requirement is for comparing at least two events, situations, things or personalities, while discussing about their similarities and differences.
Therefore, at least a pair of topics should be discussed in every contrast essay.

However, the topic groups can be segregated to form a pair, for this purpose. Given below are a few of the topic issues that can become part of such essays.

Making a contrast of several features, for two movies, that involves emotions of hatred and love. This will require students to make their observations on the depiction of love and hatred, as shown in the two films. However, students will do well to cite references of famous critiques for supporting their comparative theories.
Comparison of two different projects meant for achieving similar results. This will involve comparing the merits and demerits of each, so that a proper comparative statement can be prepared.

Techniques involving comparative analysis

There are many ways to prepare a compare and contrast statement. One such technique is to take the help of “venn” diagram, which will depict, graphically the similarities and differences, within the circles that may overlap. The other ways include making notes of various characteristics of the topics involved that contrast with each other in one or the other way.

For example, when the students are asked to write a contrast essay with help writing an essay, for two novels; they will require studying both, very carefully. If both the novels happen to be from same writer, his other works can also be studied, to form an opinion about his viewpoint on the controversial issues raised in the novels. Thereafter, students should draw comparison on the different literary tools used by the writer to highlight his established viewpoint. However, if the writers are different, then students should include a comparison between their other works that have relevance to the concerned topics

In order to know more about the writing tips, required for similar assignments, students should also go through other argumentative essays and essay reference.

The main body of this essay should discuss in detail about each point, which has become the bane of such comparative statements. Students should then conclude the contrast essay, while summarizing the main points discussed in the essay body.
