The point of compare-contrast writing is either exploratory or argumentative.
compare and contrast the text of A Christmas Carol with the film (Mickeys Christmas Carol 1983)
This compare-contrast model will be argumentative. You need to make a specific point and avoid listing every single difference.
Write in essay format (introduction, body paragraphs, conclusion), and feel free to use research if it helps your argument.
Include in-text citations and references when appropriate. We will all cite our copies of the book and movie in the reference page.
