Now that you have conquered Cause and Effect so BRILLIANTLY, we are going to spend some time looking at how things and ideas are different and how they are the same.
This benchmark is called COMPARING AND CONTRASTING...
Comparing-- How things are ALIKE or SIMILAR
Contrasting-- How things are DIFFERENT or DISSIMILAR
Go to this website (Click right here!) to explore a little more about Comparing and Contrasting on your own.
Be sure to click on each tab and read each piece of information carefully. There is a lot to absorb...
Also on each tab there are arrows <--- and ---->. Be sure to navigate each tab and then click the ----> until you have read each section/tab completely.
