Creating A 7th Grade Comparative Essay Step By Step

A comparative essay is a kind of research that compares two book characters, two objects, two situations, etc. It’s one of the most interesting types of essays for students, because normally there is a lot to speak about when two objects are compared.

Let’s see how a good 7th grade comparative essay can be written.

  1. Analyze your topic.
  2. You need to have a clear idea of what you are supposed to write. You can have numerous ideas, but if they are not relevant to your essay, you will lose points. Make sure that you understand what you are expected to do.

  3. Take a close look at compared objects.
  4. When you start to inspect their peculiar features, you will feel a temptation to give attention to all of them. This is the wrong choice. It’s better to choose several of the most important ones and use them for comparison.

  5. Start from the biggest amount of work.
  6. You should not think that all academic papers are written in a precise order from the first page to the last one. It makes sense to start with working over the biggest amount of information in your essay in what are called body paragraphs. When you analyze all of the information that you have on the subject, you will know which details will require more attention.

  7. Compare what can be compared.
  8. When you get down to comparing your objects, you should remember that you cannot compare features of different kinds. For example, if you compare the personality of one person with another person’s appearance, your research will make no sense.

  9. Move on to conclusions.
  10. After you are through with the main research and body paragraphs, it’s the best time to make conclusions and write the part of your work that gives closure to the entire essay. It’s quite an important part of the paper, so you need to give it enough attention.

  11. Write the introduction.
  12. In the introduction, you may use the same idea that was used for conclusions, yet, you need to paraphrase it. In other words, in the introduction you need to speak about the desirable results you are planning to receive with your research, while in the conclusion these results will be named precisely.

  13. Check your work once again.
  14. When you have written everything that you wanted to write, put your work aside and take a break. Then return to your project and read it once again, correcting mistakes and places where there is no logical connection.
